by Arnold Bennett
Publisher: George H. Doran Co. 1915
Number of pages: 566
In Clayhanger and Hilda Lessways, Bennett followed the development of a relationship from two very different perspectives. He now draws these together in a finale that sees the two young protagonists embarking upon married life. One might expect a fairy tale romance, but both Edwin and Hilda are extremely strong-willed, and this clash of personalities makes for a marriage that often hovers on the brink of failure.
