“Only a poet and, perhaps, only a young poet could have written this beautiful and distinguished first novel.” —New York Times

This is the story of two poets, one an elderly Belgian woman known to the world as Jean Latour, the other a young Englishman. When Mark Taylor finds his life and art broken up by his love for an older, married woman, he turns for help to the poems of Jean Latour and finds the help he craves in the poet herself. In this early work we see the first flowering of May Sarton’s special ability to depict sensitive people who find they must travel new pathways if they are to discover their true selves.
May Sarton (1912-1995) was an acclaimed poet, novelist, and memoirist.
