Whom God Hath JoinedeBook - 2012
Lawrence Ridware is a legal clerk in a small solicitor's practice in Hanbridge (Hanley). He and his wife, after six years of marriage, are hardly on speaking terms. He suspects her of adultery and, with the encouragement of his brother Mark, a London artist, takes the decision to divorce her. Charles Fearns, the owner of the practice where Lawrence works is a respectable married man with seven children but he cannot keep his hands off other women and one night when his wife is away even sleeps in the family bedroom with his children's French governess. They are spotted by his daughter, Annunciata, who informs her mother. Mrs Fearns, who has suspected for a while that her husband is being regularly unfaithful, sees this as the last straw. Believing that he is no longer ?a gentlemen?, she leaves him and resolves to divorce him.
