|In the Springtime of the Year|
Page 1 of 2
The story of Ruth, a young woman living in a village in the beautiful English countryside, who is widowed after an accident in which her new husband, Ben, a woodman, is killed by a falling tree and of how she struggles to survive the first terrible year of being alone, as the seasons change, moving her away from the
Springtime of the Year.
The various members of Ben’s mourning family react in their different ways but their attitudes towards the realities of life and death exclude Ruth.
Both the Hamish Hamilton hardback and the Penguin paperback editions are out of print.
