Synopsis

Alice Hartley can no longer arouse the interst of her pompous husband, the adulterous professor.  Despite her efforts, she still leaves him cold.

Just as she is compelled to face this chilling truth, she meets Michael, a young student with an excessive libido.  In Michael, Alice discovers an endless supply of all she has sought: revenge, sex and a large house suitable for conversion.

Soon the house is thigh-deep with women joyfully casting off the shackles of their oppression.  Sadly, some narrow-minded neighbours and numerous forces of the law seem completely impervious to all those healing vibrations...

Review

If you are a fan of Desperate Housewives you will love this book.  Alice Hartley's Happiness has everything you could ask for: love, passion, birth, death, excitement and revenge.

Philippa Gregory's characters literally leap off the pages - from the oppressed Alice Hartley to her young and inexperienced (often foolish) lover, from the pompous professor to the eccentric aunt, from the judgemental neighbours to the jovial vicar.  Some you will love, others you will love to hate.

Alice Hartley's Happiness is a light-hearted and humerous tale with which to escape from the busyness of parenting, work and household chores.
