South Riding - Winifred Holtby, Marion Shaw, Shirley Williams

At this point, I'm struggling with this book. The writing is top notch, but there are so many characters and we're skipping around so much that I'm not really getting a good sense of person or place.

 

The plot summary makes it sound as though the book concentrates on Sarah Burton, the new headmistress to the local school. So far, though, our engagement with Miss Burton has been minimal. I'm hoping that now that the characters and the community have been introduced, Holtby settles in and gives us a bit more of a narrative.

 

Reading for my A Century of Women project - this is the book for 1936.
