Description:

Coral Glynn arrives at Hart House, an isolated manse in the English countryside, early in the very wet spring of 1950, to nurse the elderly Mrs. Hart. Hart House is also inhabited by the perpetually disgruntled housekeeper, and Major Clement Hart, Mrs. Hart's war-ravaged son, who is struggling to come to terms with his latent homosexuality. When a child's game goes violently awry in the woods surrounding Hart House, a great shadow - love, perhaps - descends upon its inhabitants. Like the misguided child's play, other seemingly random events propel Coral and Clement into the dark thicket of marriage. Coral Glynn explores how quickly need and desire can blossom into love, and just as quickly transform into something less categorical.

Quotes:

...sad, beautiful, absorbing story of love missed, love lost, love found...This gracious novel tells of one soul's wanderings., The New York Times

Starred review. ...quietly compelling...The book is suffused with a lonely sadness and an aura of the surreal, and the many dramatic events in Coral's life are entirely plausible thanks to Cameron's skill as a storyteller., Publisher's Weekly

Simon Prebble provides charming, unassuming narration in this captivating audio edition. He also lends the characters a variety of spot-on voices and accents., Publisher's Weekly

...one of Cameron's (The City of Your Final Destination) finest novels., Library Journal

Cameron's shimmering and expectant prose infuses this deceptively simple novel with an incandescent depth., Booklist
