Reviews - What do customers think about The Spanish Farm?

Another work worthy of reprinting  Jan 5, 2001
This novel, when published in the 1920s, was a popular and critical success. It is considered of that literary school motivated by the First World War (Sassoon,Graves, Henry Williamson, etc.), though it contains no battle scenes.The title refers to a farm which gained its name through the Spanish occupation of the low countries during the counter-reformation. Its owner, Jerome Vanderlynden, and his daughter, Madeleine, inhabit the extreme north-east of France which is (was) as much Flemish as French and very close to the Western front. Madeleine, the central personage,might be a composite portrait of her that region's female: responsible, thrifty, direct, passionate, kind and maternal, yet with a certain hardness and even amorality. She wants to rejoin her lover, Georges, son of a local baron, and does so, but not before a tryst with the English Lieutenant Skene. She and Skene cohabit briefly during his leave.She later asks for and is sent money by him when, having found Georges, she begins to run short of funds. Georges, serving in the French army,dies, the war ends and, herself now proprieter of the Spanish Farm, she rejects Skene toward the close of the book. Their relationship, she knows,was created by war and terminated by peace. Hers is a well-drawn, credible portrait, the language in which she and others are described straightforward yet skilled. The Spanish Farm was the first of a trilogy, all of which are perhaps unfairly out of print or difficult to find.
