9780099570486: In the Springtime of the Year

A beautiful, lyrical novel about love and loss, and grief and mourning from the author of A Kind Man and The Woman in Black.
 
After just a year of close, loving marriage, Ruth has been widowed. Her beloved husband, Ben, has been killed in a tragic accident and Ruth is left, suddenly and totally bereft.
 
Unable to share her sorrow and grief with Ben's family, who are dealing with their pain in their own way, Ruth becomes increasingly isolated, burying herself in her cottage in the countryside as the seasons change around her. Only Ben's young brother Jo, is able to reach out beyond his own grief, to offer Ruth the compassion which might reclaim her from her own devastating unhappiness.
 
The result is a moving, lyrical exploration of love and loss, of grief and mourning, from a masterful writer.

Just read it" -- Jo Brand BBC Radio 4, A Good Read "One of Hill's earlier, quieter masterpieces" -- Emma Hagestadt Independent "Immediately arresting...you come away affected, but there is a quiet, unhurried pace which is, incongruously, a lovely and fitting touch" bookgeeks.co.uk
