LoveReading View on A Village Affair

To all intents and purposes this was Joanna’s first novel and it was the start of a genre labelled ‘aga saga’ – upper-middleclass country families getting into all sorts of messes.  Joanna is queen of this type of novel and has grown with each new one.  She’s lovely.  She actually started her writing career penning historical novels under the name of Caroline Harvey.

 

A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher...

‘A funny, intelligent and wonderfully involving novel for anyone who’s ever thought of leaving the rat race for the peace of village life – or who’s wondered if their present existence  really contains all that life has to offer.' Linda Evans, Senior Editorial Director at Transworld

A Village Affair Synopsis

The Grey House is the answer to everything in Alice Jordan's perfect life.It seems to be the ultimate achievement of her outwardly happy marriage – a loyal, if dull husband, three children, two cars and now the house.So why does she feel as if something crucial is missing?

As Alice and her family settle themselves into village life the something missing becomes something huge and then breaks, scandalizing the village, opening up old wounds.But because of it, Alice begins to feel that there is hope and humour, understanding and compassion in the new life she must build for herself.
