I normally like Joans books but this one grated on me. Add to that the fact that she normally is dead against violence towards women and nearly all her books have a woman being battered by an evil husband who then gets his comeuppance. We get told in this book it's acceptable for Fanny's husband to give het a black eye because she was going to tell a returning prisoner of war that his wife had had affairs while he was away. Talk about double standards
