A PLACE CALLED WINTER

New product

By Patrick Gale
A privileged elder son, and stammeringly shy, Harry Cane has followed convention at every step. Even the beginnings of an illicit, dangerous affair do little to shake the foundations of his muted existence - until the shock of discovery cost him everything.
Forced to abandon his wife, Harry signs up for emigration to the newly colonised Canadian prairies. Remote and unforgiving, his allotted homestead is a world away from the suburbs of Edwardian England. And yet it is here, isolated in a seemingly harsh landscape, under the threat of war, madness and an evil man of undeniable magnetism that the fight for survival will reveal in Harry an inner strength and capacity for love beyond anything he has ever known before.
