by Anita Brookner

A very gentle read. Dorothea May, the central character, is a reclusive widow who fights loneliness. She is bullied into having a young male guest to stay, but finds that the experience both transforms and helps her to adjust to her situation.

Extract

Although lonely she was not unhappy. A day like today, spent watching her neighbours' children playing in the garden, hardly moving for the duration of the long Sunday afternoon, had not been unduly burdensome.
