Virtual Feminist book Club - All Among the Barley


This month in our virtual book club we are reading All Among the Barley by local Suffolk author Melissa Harrison.

Set on a farm in Suffolk just before the Second World War, it introduces a girl on the cusp of adulthood. The autumn of 1933 is the most beautiful Edie Mather can remember, although the Great War still casts its shadow over the fields and villages around her beloved home, Wych Farm.

Constance FitzAllen arrives from London to document fading rural traditions and beliefs. For Edie, who must soon face the unsettling pressures of adulthood, the glamorous and worldly outsider appears to be a godsend. But there is more to the older woman than meets the eye.

As harvest time approaches and pressures mount on the entire community, Edie must find a way to trust her instincts and save herself from disaster.

Just us from 10am on Zoom:
