A Loose End and Other Stories

Book cover
The old fisherman lets go young Pierre, and takes on good-hearted Paul Nevin to help with the morning's catch -- at long last, thinks Marie, the fisherman's daughter. For she has heard Pierre mouthing about the village as to how the fishing will be better and quicker, once he has it all to his own. Now Marie finds the spurned Pierre stealthily creeping up the island's rocky path -- butcher knife in hand! Treacherous roads carved into cliffs of Brittany and the Channel Isles . . . the whipping devils of wind in the hills -- and the silent miseries endured by patient hearts: these fill the stories of S. Elizabeth Hall, who tells of times when life was simpler and souls pursued their ends more at one with a world at once more peaceful and more cruel than ours.
