Wilmet Forsyth is well dressed, well looked after, suitably husbanded, good looking and fairly young - but very bored. Her husband Rodney, a handsome army major, is slightly balder and fatter than he once was. Wilmet would like to think she has changed rather less.
Her interest wanders to the nearby Anglo-catholic church, where at last she can neglect her comfortable household in the more serious-minded company of three unmarried priests, and, of course, Piers Longridge, a man of an unfathomably different character altogether.

And English charming sense of humour
I love all Barbara's books. Her witty style and ability to see certain beauty and charm in everyday life is what attracts me the most in her writings. The language is impeccable, and the characters are so cosy, one feels one has know them all one’s life!
