About this product
- DescriptionThe narrators in this novel are the First World War poet, Edward Thomas, and his wife Helen. It is the story of a man's change from despair to fulfilment through friendship and the inspiration of nature, and of the consequences of that for his family. The novel is set in the tranquil rural world of an England gradually aware of the meaning of war.
- Author Biography'After teaching English in further education for a time, I worked in probation and social work for many years. I took a Masters in English Studies, just for fun, which is when my interest in Edward Thomas began. I have had poetry published but this is my first work of fiction, which was begun as I took the University of Oxford's two-year Creative Writing Diploma.' Margaret has considerable experience of Edward Thomas' work. Her MA thesis at Oxford Brookes was entitled, The Place of Edward Thomas in Twentieth Century Poetry. She is a member of the Edward Thomas Fellowship and extracts from an earlier draft of her novel were published in the Fellowship's newsletter. She is married to the artist Marc Thompson.
