I picked this one from a metafilter list of happy books. It was a nice bit of dated fluff about wealthy folk in France and England just after WWII. Grace had impetuously married a charming Frenchman just before the war and 7 years later finally moves in with him and their son. All are wondering how she will react to his womanizing ways. I was surprised at the frank discussions about adultery and homosexuality that popped up here and there in mostly non-judgmental terms (oh so decadent!). Sometimes it dragged and the child was annoying, but was nice living in their cozy world of culture and parties and pretty dresses for a while.
