This is another paragraph Product Description: Henrietta Tate has always taken her role as a full-time mother and home-maker very seriously. She's never had time for anything else. But now she and her family have moved to an idyllic house in the countryside and her teenage children are away at boarding school most of the time, she finds herself less than fulfilled by life in the sticks. Perhaps a new job working for Laurence de Havilland, the famous military historian, could provide just the distraction she needs!
