9780099589785: Together and Apart

Betsy Canning is dissatisfied with life. She has always taken pains to be healthy, popular and well-treated, but despite her wealth, her comfortable homes and beautiful children, happiness eludes her. The problem must lie, she thinks, in her marriage to Alec, and a neat, civilised divorce seems the perfect solution.

But talk of divorce sparks interference from family and friends, and soon public opinion tears into the fragile fabric of family life and private desire. Alec and Betsy's marriage will not be the only casualty, and in this newly complicated world, happiness is more elusive than ever.

Review:

" Together and Apart is a quietly accomplished novel that catches the rustle of an era not so very far from our own" ( Washington Post)

"She is not only a romantic but an anarchist, and she knows the ways of men and women very well indeed" (Anita Brookner)

"The intricate counterpoint between the life demanded by their peers and their own desires is exquisitely diagrammed" ( Washington Post)

"Kennedy was immensely popular in her heyday" ( Washington Post)

Book Description:

A comfortable marriage is pulled apart by vague dissatisfaction, romantic fancies, gossip and petty argument - a masterfully told modern tragedy by the author of The Constant Nymph
