It is a May day at World's End. The beginning of a long, hot summer in Pauline Carter's greystone cottage in England, about two hours outside of London. Pauline is copyediting an allegory of romantic love. Her daughter, Theresa, and her husband Maurice, and their son, Luke live in the second half of the cottage. Maurice is a professor and writer and is busy writing a travel journal of local places. He often invites his editor and his girlfriend down for the weekend to help with each chapter. The issue is Maurice's infatuation with his editor's girlfriend. Oh, what memories this stirs in Pauline's heart. She fears for Theresa, who is so in love with her husband.

Years ago, Pauline fell in love with Harry, a professor and bon vivant. Pauline and Harry married much to everyone's surprise. Harry was known as a lady's man and not the type to marry. And, in due course, Theresa was born to Pauline and Harry. Harry was not much of a father, he loved Theresa but was not involved in her life. Much the same could be said of Maurice and his behavior with Luke. Pauline is so afraid for Theresa, she could sense imminent betrayal, and no one was speaking of it. Pauline was much respected by Maurice, but he offered no excuses nor did he feel he needed to excuse his behavior. This type of thing just happpened.
Penelope Lively has given us an elegant portrayal of fragile family dynamics that have already been greatly affected by adultery. Pauline will do anything to assist her daughter, and she opens her heart to Theresa. She discusses her own life with Theresa's father, and the fact that she should have left him long before she did. However, Theresa is not ready to discuss anything about her husband with Pauline at this time- denial is the name of the game. Pauline must take little steps with her daughter and support her as best she can.
This is once again, a book not to be put down. Penelope Lively has a habit of writing this kind of novel. The conclusion adds a form of the unusual and unexpected. I was not ready for this story to end, but the author knows best. We realize that the anxiety and suspicion we have felt has led to frustration, and now we can look at the situation with clearer eyes. This is Penelope Lively's eleventh novel, and I must read each one. She is an author unlike any other. Each book is better than the last, but how can that be? A witty and intelligent author with every novel a number one in my book! prisrob

Brilliant study of intimacy and the lack thereof. Lively creates a world so complete and compelling and by turns desirable and despicable we are loath to leave it for reality.

Penelope Lively is a wonderful writer, taking us into the thoughts of her characters with intelligence and humanity. Unfortunately, this particular novel doesn't live up to her usual storytelling. There is too much description of landscape and extraneous detail that takes away from the story which, when boiled down, isn't that complicated unlike The Photograph which punched you in the stomach and made a lasting impression. So much so, I read it twice.

Cant get enough of Lively.....she is a brilliant writer

Anything by Penelope Lively is wonderful-but this is my all-time favorite. I don't think anybody has described philandering husbands as well, and the common strategy to make the suspecting spouse appear irrational and unhinged. A small masterpiece and classic

Ms Lively actually knows how to keep you engrossed from beginning to end. By the way, the end is subject to different interpretations and this makes it even more difficult to forget. Lively's writing is always a pleasure not to be missed.

Very disappointed. After reading a very positive review I thought it might be a story I would enjoy. It seemed to be taking forever to get to the point of the story and after reading one third of the book, I never reached that point. Unfortunately it has been placed in my box of books to be donated.
I really enjoyed this book, not fast action just comfortable. This writer really explains the time and the place well.
