Other People’s Worlds by William Trevor – a classic early novel by one of the world’s greatest writers. What chance has a nice middle-class woman got against a determined conman? 47-year-old widow, Julia, is about to remarry, much to the delight and relief of her daughters. But her mother has suspicions about Francis which she keeps to herself. Perhaps wrongly: if she’d shared her feelings with her daughter the disaster might have been avoided. Meanwhile, there are two other women who have a claim on the would-be bridegroom – and the way things are shaping up it might be one of them, rather than Julia, who comes off worst out of the situation. William Trevor’s brilliant novel explores the small horrors that lie close to the surface of ordinary life.
