£2.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A first novel of love, obsession and the destruction of a community told with grace and artistry.

It is 1936 in a remote dale in the old, northern county of Westmorland. When a man from Manchester arrives, spokesman for a vast industrial project to create a new reservoir, the villagers must come to terms with the fact that this corner of Lakeland will be transformed. Jack Liggett, the Waterworks representative, begins a troubled and intense affair with Janet Lightburn from the village. A woman of force and strength of mind, her natural orthodoxy deeply influences him. Finally, in tragic circumstances, a remarkable, desperate act on Janet's part attempts to restore the valley to its former state.
