Description: Synopsis: For 20 years Anna Bouverie, as a vicars wife, had served God in a diversity of ways.

Soon she found herself admired by three very different men. : : From the Back Cover: For twenty years Anna Bouverie, as a priests wife (ú9000 a year and a redbrick rectory that looked like a bus shelter) had served God and the parish in a diversity of ways. She had organised the deanery suppers, made cakes for the Brownies Easter Cake Bake, delivered parish magazines, washed and ironed her husbands surplices (not altogether perfectly according to Miss Dunstable), grown her own vegetables and clothed herself and her children in left-over jumble-sale items. : : When her husband failed to gain promotion to archdeacon and retreated into isolated bitterness, and the bullying of her younger daughter at the local comprehensive reached unendurable proportions, Anna suddenly rebelled. Taking a job in the local supermarket she earned money, a sense of her own worth, the shocked disapproval of the parish, and the icy fury of her husband. : : As her loneliness and isolation increased, she was observed with passionate interest by three significant men, each of whom was to play a part in the part-tragic, part-triumphant blossoming of Annas life.Comments: pristine- as new - immediate dispatch
