This is a blog about my reads as well as everything related to them.
My taste is for good quality literature - old and new. Some of it I review here or on my main book blog Edith's Miscellany.
This book from the pen of an almost forgotten woman writer from Wales was first published in 1928.
Winter Sonata is no novel with a plot full of action or romance, but only a quiet story imitating the form of a musical sonata. Its protagonist is a shy young telegraph clerk who has just moved to a small English village where he hopes that the winter will be less detrimental to his health and where he frequents the house of the middle-class Neran sisters because he can play the cello and they like to listen. Nonetheless, class distinction and gender roles ask their toll just like the lack of sympathy and understanding for the people closest to the Neran family.
