Someone at A DistanceBook - 2005
A quietly gripping story about the destruction of a marriage. Ellen is "that unfashionable creature, a happy housewife" who loves her life in the English countryside. She tends her garden, dotes on her children, and, when she remembers, visits her cantankerous mother-in-law. This domestic bliss, however, is shattered when her husband, in a moment of weak mid-life vanity, runs off with a French girl.
