Three brothers and their interwoven story in the setting of Dartmoor in the 1800's.Usually I am not very attracted by descriptions of scenery but here they are so remarkable and vivid they illuminate the whole book.
The story is one of redemption, the characters very individual and well drawn. The style and types are
typical of the time. It is not fast moving but is beautiful in many ways and the story has its twists and turns.
