Time is Noon

(1967)
A novel by

 
In one of Pearl Buck's most revealing works, a woman looks back on her long and rocky path to self-realization

Considered to be one of Pearl S. Buck's most autobiographical novels, The Time Is Noon was kept from publication for decades on account of its personal resonance. The book tells the story of Joan Richards and her journey of self-discovery during the first half of the twentieth century. As a child, family and small-town life obscure Joan's individuality; as an adult, it's inhibited by an unhappy marriage. After breaking free of the latter, she begins a stark reassessment of the way she's been living - and to her surprise, learns to appreciate all that lies ahead. The Time Is Noon is a humble, elegant tale of chances lost and reclaimed, and remains beautifully affirming today.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author's estate.
