A Jest of God

Margaret Laurence, Margaret Atwood, Michael Schmidt

A duty-ridden woman dreams of breaking free from her small-town chains. ‘An almost perfect book’ MARGARET ATWOOD. Whenever I find myself thinking in a brooding way, I must simply turn it off and think of something else. God forbid that I should turn into an eccentric. Rachel Cameron is a shy, retiring schoolmistress, tethered to her overbearing invalid mother. Thirty-four and unmarried, she feels herself edging towards a lonely spinsterhood. But then she falls in love for the first time, and embarks upon an affair that will change her life in unforeseen ways.
