Overview

Pulitzer Prize winner

Sabine Callendar had fled from the stifling propriety of Durham, New England twenty years ago. With a failed marriage behind her and an eighteen year old daughter to present to society, everyone is surprised to find that Sabine has returned, not as the pitiable and broken creature they expected, but as a strong and assured individual with an uncanny ability to see through the postures and pretenses of the society that oppressed her as a girl. With her bold independence and forthright nature, Sabine challenges the social order and becomes a catalyst for changes in the lives of the people around her.

Bromfield's startling depth of insight into the characters of this novel and his brilliant portrayal of the challenges to old New England society earned him national recognition. Bromfield was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Early Autumn.

Editorial Reviews

Bookman - George Hawkins
We find him [Bromfield] making use of lovely and amazing pertinent description to evolve his moods and characters. We find him developing in picturesqueness of style and in the ability to choose his detail. In the story of the Pentlands, Mr. Bromfield has written both a dramatic novel and a stinging satire. It is an important book, and an entertaining one.
