John Wetherell says:
“I can’t remember the plot at all. There was a woman who loved geraniums. But the atmosphere is with me vividly, and the personality of the narrator (1st person).
One of the author’s poems (Seventh Song from her Suffolk Song Cycle) appeared as Poem of the Week in The Independent newspaper around 1994. Because I liked the poem, I managed to get hold of her first novel, The Burial. She died in 1993 from cancer, but managed to complete a part of the Camino pilgrimage in the last few months of her life, and wrote a book as well about that.
