9780140061185: Judgement Day

Judgement Day is the third novel by Booker Prize winning author Penelope Lively.

Settled into the drowsy village life of Laddenham, where she is playing camp follower to her highly successful husband - clever, agnostic and interested - Clare Paling discovers that small communities offer interesting sideshows of adultery, gossip and carefully adhered to pecking orders.

It takes the pageant celebrating the church's fourth centenary and an unpardonable death to remind Clare, who had almost forgotten, that the world is a very uncertain place.

'Beautiful and brillliant' Auberon Waugh

'I find Penelope Lively almost excessively gifted . . . the most enjoyable novel I have read for a very long time indeed' The Times
