After 20 years of marriage Brad hardly engaged his wife in anything more  complex than the rituals of a comfortable friendship. He and Hayley seldom fought, and it seemed to her that Brad was tired and damp, and couldn’t become incendiary even if he tried. In fact Brad was something of a peacemaker between her and Verity. He detested the fuse of conflict that mother and daughter were able to light, burn fiercely and then extinguish, as if he were afraid that it may get out of control and that things said out loud might burn the family unit and cause it to disintegrate.
