A Girl in Winter

Front Cover
St. Martin's Press, 1962 - England, Northern - 248 pages
A Girl in Winter is the moving and enigmatic story of Katherine LInd, a European woman in wartime England. The vicious winter weather has paralyzed the countryside; the emotions of Katherine are frozen as well, as fear and loneliness increase her sense of isolation. By splicing the story of Katherine's sunlit 16th summer in between the halves of a single winter day on which the suitor of her youth returns to her present life, Larkin illuminates the process by which we learn to decipher and accommodate the longings of the heart.
