Summary Of course it was absurd to make a fuss. It really was nothing a kiss in a cornfield on a hot day. Lots of farmers’ wives might have done it - only Mary was not lots of farmers’ wives. She was Mary Robson of Anderby world and her conduct must be without blemish'. Mary Robson is a young Yorkshire woman, married to her solid unromantic cousin, John. Together they battle to preserve Mary's neglected inheritance, her beloved farm, Anderby world. This labour of love- and the benevolent tyranny of traditional Yorkshire ways have made Mary old before her time. Then, into her purposeful life erupts David Rossitur, red-haired, charming, and eloquent: how can she help but love him? But David is a young man from a different England, radical, committed to social change. As their confrontation and its consequences inevitable unfold, Mary's life and that of the calm village of Anderby are changed forever.
