Description
An unconventional woman trapped in a conventional marriage, Martha Quest struggles to maintain her dignity and her sanity through the misunderstandings, frustrations, infidelities, and degrading violence of a failing union, in this 1954 novel—the second in Doris Lessing's largely autobiographical Children of Violence sequence. Here Martha must make the heartbreaking choice of whether to sacrifice her child as she turns her back on marriage to pursue the calling of her intellect. Awarded the Nobel Prize in 2007, Lessing (1919–2013) was one of the most celebrated and distinguished writers of our time, receiving the Somerset Maugham Award, the David Cohen Memorial Prize for British Literature, the James Tait Black Prize, Spain's Prix Catalunya and Prince of Asturias Prize, and a dozen other prestigious literary awards.

"With deceptive simplicity she reveals more about the private depths of mind and soul than perhaps one ought to know."—Daily Telegraph (London)
