Recently widowed and struggling to make a living, Elaine Menutis becomes embroiled in a passionate love affair with the arrogant, nineteen-year-old Hugh Littleton, a romance that almost destroys her but brings the younger man to maturity
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Small-town Texas at mid-century is the setting for this entrancing romance. Elaine Menutis is still mourning for her perfect husband, who died in the war three years earlier, when Hugh Littleton walks into her office. He's a child of privilege, buying land for his rich rancher father during his summer vacation from Princeton; she's the daughter of a farmer, selling real estate in Dansville to make her way. Their attraction is mutual, their relationship deeply sensuous, often tempestuous, and notably illicit in this time and place. But class and age divide them, and a break seems inevitable, as does the final resolution. McCorquodale tells this story largely through the interior lives of the central characters in cadenced, compelling prose that is stunningly sensuous without being either explicit or euphemistic. A memorable first novel. Michele Leber, Fairfax Cty. P.L., Va.
