Season To Taste or How To Eat Your Husband by Natalie Young, book reviewLizzie Prain is a fifty-something housewife in rural Surrey. She has been married to her dull husband Jacob for thirty years, and enjoys cooking, gardening and walking their dog Rita in the local woods. When the neighbours at the farm up the road mention they haven’t seen Jacob for a while, Lizzie tells them that he has left her for another woman and won’t be coming back.

The story goes back in time to the late 1940s, when Lucie Borja and her husband moved into the chateau, to provide the background to the story.
