Thanks for the welcome and kind words. Excellent point about the different expectations about their marriage too.

I suppose that is really what makes this book such a great one - that all the characters are flawed and human and there is something to sympathise with in each of them - nothing is black or white, good or bad. Just so many subtle layers there to discover and appreciate. No wonder Virginia Woolf (I think) said it's a book for grown-ups.

Edit: (Ah yes, in that article you found for us, Bookworm_Girl - thanks.)
