Widow Lucy Summers moves to a house on the coast of Cornwall in Winterbourn's Autumn Return.
Although her sons and their wives--all of them in London--oppose the move, Lucy wants a new start. She was married to a missionary but never felt comfortable with church concerns and wants now to cultivate her privacy and pursue her long-suppressed artistic yearnings. Fortunately or unfortunately, the local villagers drop by, overwhelming her with kindness but also compromising her solitude. Then a lonely vicar comes calling and all bets are off in this romance that strikes an original tone and then yields to convention. John MortCopyright © American Library Association.
