Comments

Fantasy. The novel spans over a thousand years but one geographical area: Southern Cheshire, England. Garner evokes the essence of place, allowing his characters to echo each other through time, as if their destinies may be predefined by the soil on which they walk. These are themes explored more tangibly in his earlier work 'The Owl Service', but brought here to maturity in a weave of rapid, impressionistic dialogue. It is set in three intertwined time periods: Roman Britain, the siege of Barthomley Church during the English Civil War, and a caravan site near the M6 in the modern day. "From the standpoint of plot pattern and character delineation this is probably the most complex and innovative of Garner's novels." - Tymn (ed), Fantasy Literature, p. 90.
