A gentle read,

This review is from: In the Springtime of the Year (Paperback)
If you feel like reading slowly and sighing often, then this gentle book is for you. Ms Hill explores grief and loss through the emotions of a young and unworldly woman, who draws deeply on nature for sustenance and survival. Sometimes other-worldly, the author deals with the most raw and awful of human emotions in an unflinching but always tender way, leading the young widow and the reader towards a resolution of new growth. It is not just about grief and loss, but also about new possibilities and new ways of seeing other people. This is my first Susan Hill novel and I will read more.
