    Description'In a town like Beechnall there are all sorts of rivalries, enmities and feuds.' And many of them soon swirl around the amateur dramatic society's festival production of Twelfth Night, which is under a cloud after politics result in the departure of the established director. Extra-marital affairs, encroaching violence and emotional turmoil threaten what seems like a placid, middle-class Midlands town, and soon Alicia Smallwood, Middleton's heroine, is confronted with serious choices. Once again Stanley Middleton weaves a strong web of intrigue around ordinary provincial life - which turns out, as the plot unfolds, not to be so ordinary after all.

    Review quote
    "It may look to the naked eye like a small ripple in the small midlands town of Beechnall, but passion and violence are bubbling beneath the placid surface. A.S. Byatt has described Middleton's art as "an exact vision of real things as they are"; which neatly sums up his understated accuracy, and the subtle development of his characters." The Times "Though love is on the agenda, this is also a book that rejoices in the workings of the mind and celebrates the intellect but is never dry ... One thing you don't get with Middleton is dumbing down." Daily Express "In Her Three Wise Men, Middleton constructs a provincial world where everyone displays good manners and emotional continence but strong feelings swirl beneath the surface" TLS
