In The Hidden Bend Guy Cranswick weaves together three very disparate stories of people traversing personal (and physical) terrain that will change their lives - it could be their undoing, or it could be their salvation. Outcomes are unclear for these protagonists, although some are hinted at more strongly than others. This is a distinguished, assured fiction - a worthy, understated piece in which the inner journeys convince and satisfy. I recommend it.
