Moving exploration of bereavement,
This review is from: In the Springtime of the Year (Paperback)
A moving exploration of bereavement told with simplicity and beautifully written. The seasons and the countryside add an extra dimension, almost an extra character, which provides depth to this the tale of a young widow's loss of her husband in a freak accident. It is not maudlin but it is very touching and some of the writing has a very poetic, lyrical feel which I thoroughly enjoyed.
It is not a complex story but it is one that I feel better for reading - it asks questions but doesn't provide all the answers what it does provide is a sense of hope.
