A woman looks back on her long, rocky path to fulfillment in this revealing novel by the New York Times - bestselling author of The Good Earth.

Considered one of the most personal and autobiographical novels by the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize - winning author, The Time Is Noon tells the story of Joan Richards and her journey of self-discovery during the first half of the twentieth century. As a child, Joan finds her individuality obscured by her place in her family and her small town. In her adulthood, her struggle to discover her true self continues - but is inhibited by an unhappy marriage.

After breaking free from her husband, she begins a stark reassessment of the way she's been living - and to her surprise, learns to appreciate all that lies ahead - in this elegant novel of chances lost and reclaimed, a beautifully affirming story of one woman's journey to maturity.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author's estate.
