The Tortoise and the Hare by Elizabeth Jenkins

Imogen Gresham and her husband and neighbours - county people, living in beautiful homes, with servants and smooth cars - are the subjects of this story of domestic betrayal. Jenkins negotiates Imogen to a startling and satisfactory finale, producing at the same time a portrait of marriage á la mode and of female masochism and timidity.
Elizabeth Jenkins was born in Hertfordshire.
