The rhythms of nature awaken Connie – daffodils, pheasant chicks – and soon she and Parkin become lovers. She’s now radiant. Parkin, too, opens up. Class distinctions and gender roles may be barriers to the affair becoming more. Connie’s trip to France, with her father and sister, bring the lovers to a nuanced resolution.Read More »
