Lovereading view...

The Lake District of 1976 and a highly conservative tightly knit farming community are the back drop for this beautifully written slow burning novel. Catherine Hall’s writing has been compared to Sarah Waters and Daphne Du Maurier and its inclusion in Fiction Uncovered will undoubtedly bring her to the attention of a larger audience.

 

Judging Panel Fiction Uncovered 2011: ‘Hall conjures the parched heat of the summer of 1976 as a young Cambridge mathematician finds light and shade in the Cumbrian hills.’

Synopsis

The Proof of Love by Catherine Hall

By the time the summer holidays begin, Spencer Little is keen to put the events of the past term at Cambridge behind him and a remote village in the Lake District seems to offer the perfect escape. But it's not so easy to remain anonymous in a small community and, after striking up a friendship with ten year old Alice, Spencer also finds himself being drawn into other people's lives. As the summer heatwave intensifies and a web of complicity tightens around him, Spencer realizes that he will eventually be forced to choose between loyalty and truth, between logic and passion.
