Description
Morality Tale is a novel about the triangular complications of a modern marriage and the comedy that flows from them. When the elusive but exciting Richard (an envelope salesman with a nice laypersons line in Zen philosophies) meets this novels narrator, he offers her a friendly escape from her own daunting domestic life.

Burdened by her husbands ongoing negotiations with his angry ex-wife, the strains of looking after two stepchildren, and the lingering ghost of her own past betrayals, she finds that the life of a second marryer leaves much to be desired.

As her friendship develops with Richard, so grows the shadow cast over her marriage by his presence, and when they make a late, illicit bay crossing together on a ferryboat, the story gathers momentum under Californias Mount Tamalpais. There, in the fabled Golden State, Sylvia Brownrigg shows how even a laypersons Zen can lead to some important revelations about the need to look forward, not back.

Told with unwavering honesty and wit, Morality Tale explores what it means to be married a second time aroundand the crucial universal truth that change is often the key to staying together.
