I loved the way all of the characters emotions were disseted,it wasn't a romance as such but a studyof love and hate set aginst a background of stiff Bristish mores.
When Maurice and Sarah were making love in her drawing room on the lounge, and her pleasure was audible,maurice afraid her husband who was ill upstairs would hear her cries of passion,she replies that he would not recognise the sound.It was sad.
In the church, when Maurice had stalked Sarah after their breakup. She was so ill she had fallen asleep on his shoulder,he was under the impression they would go away together,she was actually dying and too exhausted to deny his wish.
The woman who loved.
This was quite a sad book,two people who were almost happy,circumstances were against their union.
kept me interested
life in a small town
The study of the connections between the different social claseses and the insight into the characters' lives seemed to come from inside knowledge about life in a small town
