9780141186429: The Rectors Daughter (Penguin Modern Classics)

Mary was plain, middle-aged and reliable. Her life centred on her father, the crabbed and difficult Canon Jocelyn, and on the quiet duties of a rector's daughter deep in the country. She never dreamed that her life was to be shaken to the core by an unlooked-for love affair. "The Rector's Daughter is a masterpiece...it is about love; filial love and married love and extreme sexual passion, and about the anguish, despair and intermittent bliss of every hopeless relationship between man and woman. It is a blisteringly honest account of middle-aged desire, that most painful of all afflictions, and at the same time a careful, tender study of a happy marriage" Susan Hill

Review:

it is elegant and flexible, most fluently expressing every shade of human emotion ( Susan Hill)

The most exquisitely written, delicate, passionately felt and haunting book I have ever read ( Elizabeth Buchan)

Book Description:

*'Her work is certainly far too little known in relation to the greatness of her talent. But her masterpiece THE RECTOR'S DAUGHTER, is in print again' SUSAN HILL

*A wonderfully moving, harrowing but ultimately uplifting novel of love.
