'Nobody is better than Francis King at handling loving but uncertain relationships, and at illuminating the spaces between people.' Alan Massie

When her husband, an Indian civil servant, dies on his way to take up a new and important post, Christine Cornwell is left with a son and daughter, and a small pension on which to support them.

A woman of unusual toughness and resilience, she adapts herself quickly to the difficulties of her new life as a widow in England in the mid-1930s; to the war; and, finally, to the mutilation of her son, a bomber pilot. But her resources begin to fail her when, after the war, she feels herself cast aside and isolated.

But, with a wonderful mixture of shrewdness and compassion, Christine has the depths of character to enable her to find a solution to this challenging situation.

The Widow is a classic of post-war British fiction.
