Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An amusing satire on modern marriage and the mistakes that are made, all set around a beautiful Elizabethan house and estate and a private London bank. You can see it all going wrong but not know how the problems are resolved. Satisfying, glamorous and highly absorbing. Anthony is a thoroughly decent man who is really too kind for his own good. A lovely read.

Synopsis

A Much Married Man by Nicholas Coleridge

As Anthony Anscombe surveys Winchford Priory, his beautiful Elizabethan house in Oxfordshire, he has the distinct feeling that he's under siege. He may be surrounded by his sprawling estate and one of the best pheasant shoots in the country, but lurking in the village are more than one or two reminders of a complicated past.

His first wife was the hauntingly beautiful girl he married in an impulsive rush of hedonism. Amanda was never going to live up to her role as the wife of a country squire, so why does she still cast such a long shadow in Anthony's life?

Sandra, the second wife, came to Anthony's rescue. Sturdy, dependable and domesticated, Sandra had plans to turn the Priory into a proper family home, until that summer when it all went horribly wrong...

And then there's Dita, a force of nature. Smart, tough, rapaciously social and high-maintenance, Dita storms through Anthony's life, organising and rearranging, particularly when it comes to previous Mrs Anscombes and their children.

With the entire cast of his life roosting in the village, it's no wonder Anthony doesn't have a minute's peace…

Reviews

A modern-day Trollope, a social comedy of manners that tells you all you need to know about sex, class and money at the end of the 20th century.'
Sebastian Shakespeare
TATLER

'If you love a Jilly Cooper-esque tale of naughtiness among the upper classes, then Coleridge's wickedly funny novel is guaranteed to amuse. ... a must for the beach this summer.'
GLAMOUR

'This extravagantly enjoyable novel wins credit on so many levels I hardly know where to begin. Nicholas Coleridge is not only a superb technician, skilfully manipulating an elaborate cast of characters, but he is extraordinarily observant, shows a flawless sense of place and period, and is pitch-perfect in dialogue. ... A Much Married Man is irresistible.'
Selina Hastings
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
