The Man in the Wooden Hat - Jane Gardam

This is the sequel to Old Filth; the yin to his yang. It seems shorter and more direct, giving us Betty Feather's take on her long, mostly happy marriage to Edward. We learn much more about him, by seeing him through her eyes, and fall in love with both of them. Each of them had childhoods marred by tragedy and neither had strong family ties. While their marriage seemed like one of convenience, we see it evolve into an enduring bond of mutual love and respect. It reminded me of something out of Grimm's Fairy Tales. There is even an omnipotent dwarf watching over the two of them.
