Description: Product Description
In the summer of 1920 two men meet in the quiet English countryside. One is a war survivor, living in the church, intent upon uncovering and restoring a historical wall-painting. The other too, is a war survivor camping in the next field in search of a lost grave. And out of their physical meeting comes a deeper communion, with the landscape, with history; and a catching up of the old primeval rhythms of life - past and present - so cruelly disorientated by the Great War
Reviews: Debbie (United Kingdom) (2007/11/30):
This is my favourite book of all time. In its few pages it covers many aspects of humankind - recovery after war, loss of love from a failed marriage and early twentieth century's attitude to homosexuality (to name a few).

The story opens with two soldiers returning from WW1 to work on a historical wall-painting and a lost grave. As the painting is uncovered so we learn more of their pasts and an English rural life which was to disappear over the next few years.
