The Short Day Dying, Paperback Book

The Short Day Dying Paperback



This is a beautiful and highly acclaimed debut novel of rural passion set in nineteenth century Cornwall.

Charles Wenmoth is a blacksmith and Methodist lay-preacher in the wildest reaches of South-West England.

It is 1870 and Wenmoth devotes his weekdays to work and the Sabbath to walking great distances to preach to dwindling congregations.

Charles burns with faith - but it's a faith balanced by his pleasure in nature and the physical world around him.

In his relationship with Harriet French, a blind girl who maintains her belief despite her debilitating condition, Wenmoth finds his fragile faith tested in the most trying of circumstances.
