Reader's note

The diary, which in fact is fiction, is set in a country village, where our heroine lives with two children, and a husband Robert, who works as a land agent. When the story opens in November, she is planting indoor bulbs, and being dropped in on by Robert’s boss, the odiously superior and crushingly insensitive Lady Boxe. And gradually as one reads on, despite the short sentences, and the simplicity and unpretentiousness of the prose and the subject matter, one realises that here is a very subtle and deliberate talent at work, naturally satirical, with a marvellous ear for dialogue and an unerringly accurate social sense.
