LOVE AND MONEY – Buy it here.
A collection of seven short stories, from the master of regional fiction, Phyllis Bentley.A native of Yorkshire, Bentley elegantly captures the essence of a simple rural life in her words, while expressing the lives, loves and difficulties of the people who live there with a real sensitivity of emotion. These stories range from an old feud in 1350 to the post-war coming of European refugees to the Yorkshire mills.All the tales are founded on fact, but the motivation, the cause, of these facts has remained unknown, or misunderstood, through the centuries.The awful betrayal, the highwayman’s thefts, the fatal gift of a textile design, the stubborn refusal of a right of way, the religious conflict, the jealousy, the bitterness, are contained in these seven stories:Revenge upon revenge; Isabella, Isabella; A West Riding love story; No road; A case of conscience; Love and money; You see.
