"This is the story of four seasons in the life of Charles Wenmoth, a young lay preacher in Cornwall in 1870. Life is at its hardest, poverty is everywhere. As Charles crosses and recrosses the raw, beautiful landscape, preaching to ever-dwindling congregations, he wrestles with spiritual doubt without ever quite yielding to it. He finds inspiration and strength in the natural world. And in Harriet French, a young woman to whom he is drawn by the piety and patience she maintains despite a long illness."--Jacket.
