South Riding

Sarah Burton has worked hard to make something of herself and when she returns to her hometown to interview for the position of headmistress. Sarah, having overcome her own modest beginnings, is disgusted by the power held by highly regarded sporting farmer Robert Carne of Maythorpe Hall. Yet privately Carne is deeply troubled and Sarah is curious about this man despite her initial reservations. In ‘South Riding’ we see human ills which affect all walks of life as a tightly knit community works towards resolution. ‘South Riding’ is the classic novel of Yorkshire life by the author immortalised in testament of friendship, Winifred Holtby.
