Customer Review

on 10 March 2011
This latest book by Susan Hill is, in my humble opinion, one of her very best, a miniature masterpiece. This is the story of a working-class couple, Tommy and Eve Carr, who live a quiet, modest life somewhere in the north of the England in the early 1930s, a couple who have to face the tragic death of their young daughter and the incomprehensible consequences of Tommy's own devastating illness. Written in a beautifully economic style, their poignant story veers from joy, to grief, to dread and finally acceptance. It's a tale that can be seen as a parable about how we should use our gifts, or perhaps as a metaphor for the random nature of fortune and misfortune. However you choose to interpret it, it's a hauntingly affecting tale, one of those that lingers on in the mind long after you've finished reading it.
