A Spell of Winter – Helen Dunmore

Another Barbican library loan, and another good Easter holiday read. Set in an unnamed English county in the early years of the 20th century, this novel is narrated by Catherine, and takes us from her childhood years of priveledge without parents, to incest and abortion and on into genteel poverty and loss brought The Great War. Not a joyous novel, but a good read, especially sitting in rural Herefordshire.
