A small gem,
This review is from: Madame Verona Comes Down the Hill (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"Madame Verona Comes Down the Hill" is short - a novella, really - but beautifully written, polished and, in places, poetic. Set in a dwindling rural village, it tells the story of Madame Verona's life through her memories and those of the villagers who have observed her from the bottom of the hill. Having arrived in the village young, beautiful, and wedded to her composer husband, she captures the interest in the men of the village, who continue to yearn for her as she is forced to settle into widowhood. An exploration of love and loss which is slow-burning but ultimately charming.
