'A masterpiece' JON MCGREGOR

 

'Impossible to forget' THE TIMES

 

'Astonishing' GUARDIAN

 

The fields were eternal, our life the only way of things, and I would do whatever was required of me to protect it.

 

The autumn of 1933 is the most beautiful Edie Mather can remember, though the Great War still casts a shadow over the cornfields of her beloved home, Wych Farm.

 

When charismatic, outspoken Constance FitzAllen arrives from London to write about fading rural traditions, she takes an interest in fourteen-year-old Edie, showing her a kindness she has never known before.

But the older woman isn't quite what she seems. As harvest time approaches and pressures mount on the whole community, Edie must find a way to trust her instincts and save herself from disaster.
