Miner's son David Powlett-Jones returns from the carnage of the Western Front in 1918, shell-shocked and bitterly hardened by the violence of war. He begins life again as a master at a remote Devon school, controlling the destiny of boys barely his junior.

As the years pass David becomes a teacher of rare talent, begins to find peace, and is able to adjust to the changes which are overwhelming society. But soon he will have to face up to the prospect of another terrible war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for R F Delderfield:
Mr Delderfield's manner is easy, modest, heartwarming * Evening Standard *
He built an imposing artistic social history that promises to join those of his great forebears in the long, noble line of the English novel. His narratives belong in a tradition that goes back to John Galsworthy and Arnold Bennett * Life Magazine *
R F Delderfield is a born storyteller * Sunday Mirror *
Sheer, wonderful storytelling * Chicago Tribune *
It is always a pleasure to read R F Delderfield, because he never seems to be ashamed of writing well . . . Today he is a bestseller wherever English language books are read * Books and Bookmen *
Highly recommended. Combines tension with a splendid sense of atmosphere and vivid characterisation. An excellent read * Sunday Express *

I first read this book over twenty years ago; and I still find it as compelling now as I did then. It conveys the aftermath of the First World War in vivid detail. How the horror of war had effected so many families... More
