Full description for Nightingale Wood
A sly and satirical fairytale by the author of "Cold Comfort Farm" Unavailable for decades, Stella Gibbons's "Nightingale Wood" is a delightfully modern romance ripe for rediscovery by the many fans of "Cold Comfort Farm." Poor, lovely Viola has been left penniless and alone after her late husband's demise, and is forced to live with his family in their joy-less home. Its occupants are nearly insufferable: Mr. Withers is a tyrannical old miser; Mrs. Withers dismisses her as a common shop girl; and Viola's sisters-in-law, Madge and Tina, are too preoccupied with their own troubles to give her much thought. Only the prospect of the upcoming charity ball can lift her spirits-especially as Victor Spring, the local prince charming, will be there. But Victor's intentions towards the young widow are, in short, not quite honorable.
