Product description

Review

Tender and elegant (Guardian)

Unlike anything else in modern English Literature (D.J. Taylor Spectator)

Carr's blessedly small tale of lost love is also a small hymn about art and the compensating joy of the artist, both in giving and receiving. It stays with us, too, and is oddly haunting (New Yorker)

Carr has the magic touch to re-enter the imagined past (Penelope Fitzgerald)

Synopsis

In the summer of 1920 two men, both war survivors meet in the quiet English countryside. One is living in the church, intent upon uncovering and restoring an historical wall painting while the other camps in the next field in search of a lost grave. Out of their meeting, comes a deeper communion and a catching up of the old primeval rhythms of life so cruelly disorientated by the Great War.
