An intelligent and talented woman trapped in a stagnant marriage with an also-ran in the city rat-race finds a catalyst for change in a chance meeting with an eminent portrait painter. Isabel accepts Christopher's offer of lessons and in exchange acts as his model for a series of paintings in a new style which prove to be the artist's last and most powerful works. Her own drawings are a revealing counterpoint and comment, and launch her new career as an illustrator. Jonathan meanwhile, dissatisfied with both his job and his marriage, loses the one and jeopardizes the other as he also experiences the excitement and guilt of an affair. This is a novel which explores the realities of married life, both its fragility and its endurance, and the contrasting pleasures of romance and undramatic everyday love. A Quiet Revolution was shortlisted for the Catherine Cookson Fiction Prize in 1995. Cilla Lancelyn Green is the daughter of the author Roger Lancelyn Green, best known for his re-tellings of myths and legends for children
