Mary Wesley is another of those subtle and perverse British writers who find the drama and dysfunction in small middle class communities Her characters are passionate and often thwarted, but it all plays out in an elegant and understated manner. Henry brought his new bride Margaret to Cotteshaw in 1944 On the threshold, she blackened his eye and went straight to bed, where she remained for the rest of her life except for time out for nasty deeds to Henry, the dogs, the parakeet and guests who remained for longer
