Publisher's Summary

Mike Hurst has writer’s block. Depressed and obsessed to near immobility, he withdraws to a country cottage he mysteriously fled five years before. During his stay, he becomes involved again with the locals and old friends; including Christabel (now married) whom he once loved, and Lizz, whom he believes he could now love.…

Praised by critics for his clean prose style, characterisation and the strong sense of place in his novels, Philip Maitland Hubbard was born in Reading, Berkshire, and brought up in the Channel Islands. He was educated at Oxford, where he won the Newdigate Prize for English verse in 1933. From 1934 until its disbandment in 1947 he served with the Indian Civil service, then for the British Council, before retiring to work as a freelance writer. He contributed to a number of publications, including Punch, and wrote 16 novels for adults and two children's books. He lived in Dorset and Scotland, and many of his novels draw on his interest in and knowledge of rural pursuits and folk religion.
