Sinopsis:

In 1952, Delmore Schwartz wrote of Testimonies: a triumph . . . drawn forward by lyric eloquence and the story's fascination, (the reader) discovers in the end that he has encountered in a new way the sphinx and the riddle of existence itself. Schwartz's imagination was fired by this sinister tale of love and death set in Wales.

Review:

Before the epic Aubrey-Maturin series, Patrick O'Brian wrote this sinister tale of love and death set in Wales, a dark and timeless story with echoes of Thomas Hardy and Mary Webb. Joseph Pugh, sick of Oxford and of teaching, decides to take some time off to live in a wild and beautiful Welsh farm valley. There he falls physically ill and is nursed back to health by Bronwen Vaughn, the wife of a neighboring farmer. Slowly, unwillingly, Bronwen and Pugh fall in love, and while that word is never spoken between them, their story is passionate and tragic.
