From the Publisher:

Clara Batchelor is twenty-two. Her brief, doomed marriage to Archie ended, she returns to her parents hoping for comfort. But theirs is a strict Catholic home, and its confines form a dangerous glass wall of guilt and repression between Clara and the outside world. Clara both longs for and fears what lies beyond, yet when she escapes into an exhilarating and passionate love affair, her fragile identity cracks. An extraordinary portrayal of a woman's descent into madness, this novel completes Antonia White's brilliant "May Quartet."

Book Description Random House, Inc., 1987. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Last in the Frost in May series, this delicate but powerful novel traces the descent of Clara Batchelor into madness . . . In many ways this is the most impressive of the series, with its bewilderingly honest portrayal of the breakdown of a woman and an artist. Clara's story is partly drawn from White's own collapse, her relationship with Catholicism and the influence of her adored but repressive father. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0860680975
