After years of marriage to bad-tempered, overweight Thomas, Rachel is reduced to dreams of shopping sprees in the mid-afternoon, until she decides one evening to "signal availability" at a stuffy university dinner to disastrous results. Her oblivious husband, meanwhile, manages to break off one dull affair only to fall head over heels in love with a reclusive stranger's paintings. Then there are the Farthingoes, whose marital distance is measured as much by his fascination with the nighttime habits of badgers as by her immersion in the details of the grand ball to which all our heroes are invited and which she approaches with the fervor of Zeffirelli on the stage of La Scala

Nowhere girl by Angela Huth( Book )

26 editions published between 1970 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Estranged from her second husband, Jonathan, Clare Lyall is less sure than ever about the role men should play in her life. Her first husband, Richard, was much older than her, and his casual disregard for youth gradually hardened into indifference. And Jonathan, if anything, was too easy - too attentive, too concerned, and just a little too pedantic. So when she meets Joshua Heron at a party, the offbeat Clare isn't exactly thirsting for love. But she is mildly impressed when Joshua stubs his cigarette out on his thumb, and swayed still further by the advice of her new friend, the indomitable Mrs Fox. 'Take a lover, ' she says, 'it's better to have a lover when you're young than neurosis when you're old ... ' Gentle, wistful and wry, Nowhere Girl is a beautifully controlled love story from the Booker Prize winning author of The Elected Member
