Francesca earned the title by asking for a divorce, refusing to accept her husband's
flagrant affairs, his installing his mistress at tge family home. Her husband is
flabbergasted at her "attitude" deeming it unreasonable and unfair. The same whiney
attitude is followed by his family and even worse her own, who have all cut her out
of their lives.
Francesca has had a single short lived affair, documented by her husband and dangerously
close to another more passionate one with her husband's bestfriend.
The story highlights the hypocrisy and double standards of society, which was willing
to overlook Francesca's escapades provided she kept them discreet and avoided the D
WORD. She was not willing to do that so face the music she did.
Very unusual ending to the story which caught me by surprise, a pleasant one.
Very good reading over the holidays.

It's always the woman who gets painted in a bad light and never the man. This sounds like a good read. I am glad you liked the ending! I hope you have a Happy New Year, Mystica!ReplyDelete
