The Daughter Game by Kate Long

This is a humorous and dramatic story of Anna, a teacher whose personal life is in crisis.

It is a compelling tale of her marriage betrayal and the spiraling effects on everyone about her when she ends the affair. For Anna a history of miscarriages, her relationship with her dead mother, dealing with a difficult pupil and her concern for a troubled new student provide the catalyst to her questioning aspects of her life.

The story travels from classroom to middle class home to a rented caravan to a run down house.

A realistic story and absorbing read with the dialogue creating memorable images.
