Description: Hamilton, Primavera Press. 1972, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 359 pp, 9" H. Inscribed on title page: "Best Wishes / Helen E. Britton". "Set in Eastern Ontario, the story has a prologue set in the atmosphere of a village at a time just before the First World War and opens in a town, Rossac, on the St. Lawrence River, following the interlinking lives of characters from the end of the Second World War through the 1950s and into the 'new morality' of the late 1960s and the present decade (1970s). Idyllic love stories, loneliness, the machinations of frustrated passions, the violence and tragedies of a sex-drug culture, all enter into the story; and at its hub is a crippled physician-philosopher who is both observer and counselor to the characters."
