This second volume in Smith’s quartet picks up where Autumn left off. As with Winter, everything is stripped bare and the characters are forced to face up to previous life choices & their reasons for those choices. It is as if there is nowhere to hide and past fears and regrets intrude in their consciousness in unexpected ways.
Smith’s writing still has its lyrical quality and conveys not just the plot but the emotional drama. Once again, I look forward to the next instalment.
