Frost At Morning

(1950)
A novel by

 
Frost at Morning is the heart-breaking story of four young children who, deserted by their parents, have been sent off to a vicarage that takes in children as paying guests.

There's Philip, a sensitive boy whose father has remarried and gained a more preferable stepson; anxious little Monica, with a mother spiraling towards alcoholism; adopted Geraldine, whose desperate desire be loved actively repels people; and beautiful, vain Angela, who is ignored by her eccentric novelist mother. Left to themselves they grow to depend on one another and, as they leave the vicarage and return to their fractured homes, it become clear that a bond has formed that will hold them forever. . .

As the years pass, their adult lives connect and intertwine, and the damage inflicted by their childhoods creeps ever closer to the surface. Can they build themselves anew? Or will happiness elude them forever?

An exquisitely written and poignant story, Frost at Morning is a wonderful exploration of childhood and an evocative portrait of interwar Britain.
