A Crowded Marriage Author:Catherine Alliott There are already 3 people in artist Imogen Cameron's marriage - herself, her husband Alex, and their 9 yr old son Rufus, and that's just the way she likes it. But that's about to change... — When the Camerons hit dire financial straits they are forced to move out of their London home and accept an offer from Eleanor Latimer of a rent-free cottag... more »e on her country estate. Ordinarily, the offer of a free home in the country is not to be sniffed at but, as Eleanor just happens to be Alex's beautiful, rich and frankly flirtatious ex, Imogen is very sniffy indeed.
And with good reason. Once installed in the less than idyllic Shepherd's Cottage, Imogen's life is suddenly full to bursting with surly locals, psychotic chickens, a maddening (if handsome) headmaster, mountains of manure, visits from the infuriatingly bossy vet, and of course Eleanor, who seems to be permanently at Alex's side.
As far as Imogen's concerned, two's a marriage, three's a family and this...well, this is just silly, someone's going to have to go.
