Spiderweb by Penelope Lively

Cover of

Not very fulfilling and left me disappointed and wanting it to have been better. The basic story is that a social anthropologist, used to travelling the world and researching community life on far flung shores, retires to rural Somerset and finds it just as interesting/researchable/odd as the other places she’s been. Except it gets side tracked into the story of the family next door which is potentially a more interesting tale but all told a bit superficially.

More information about this book can be found on goodreads.
