Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mrs. Lippincote's house, with its mahogany furniture and yellowing photographs, stands as a reminder of all the certainties that have vanished with the advent of war. Temporarily, this is home for Julia, who has joined her husband Roddy at the behest of the RAF. Although she can accept the pomposities of service life, Julia's honesty and sense of humor prevent her from taking her role as seriously as her husband might wish; for Roddy, merely love cannot suffice—he needs homage as well as admiration. And Julia, while she may be a most unsatisfactory officer's wife, is certainly no hypocrite.

Synopsis:

Mrs Lippincote's house stands for all the certainties that have vanished with the advent of war. Temporarily, it is home for Julia regarded as a most unsatisfactory officer's wife, who has joined her husband Roddy at the behest of the RAF, with her young son and Roddy's cousin. This novel explores the hypocrisies and evasions inherent in marriage.
