Publisher's Summary

Ralph and Anna Eldred are an exemplary couple, devoting themselves to doing good. 30 years ago as missionaries in Africa, the worst that could happen did. Shattered by their encounter with inexplicable evil, they returned to England, never to speak of it again. But when Ralph falls into an affair, Anna finds no forgiveness in her heart, and 30 years of repressed rage and grief explode, destroying not only a marriage but also their love, their faith, and everything they thought they were.

©1994 Hilary Mantel (P)2011 W.F. Howes

Beautifully written

I read again immediately on finishing as time frames rolled forward and back again. ...and because I wanted to live the story itself again.

Moving tale of a family who try to "do good."

Believable people in a family story that includes a season in South Africa under apartheid. I listened to it twice.
