But England presents more than a contrast of scenery to this German couple, as Edelgard seems to undergo a change of temperament. This is an account of an ill-assorted group of upper-class people grappling with the hardships of the open road.It is written from the German husbands point of view, who is so utterly convinced he is correct... So much that he cannot ever even think he is at fault...Mr Skeffington, made into a clasic Bette Daviss movie (although fans say the book is much better!), is the story of Fanny, a woman approaching her fiftieth birthday. Having long ago divorced Mr. Skeffington and dismissed him from her thoughts, is surprised to find herself thinking of him. While attempting to understand this unwelcome invasion, she meets, through a series of coincidences and deliberate actions, all those other men whose hearts she has broken...
