The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne

By Brian Moore, 1955

Judith is an unmarried woman of a certain age who has come down in society. She has few skills and is full of the prejudices and pieties of her genteel Belfast upbringing. An unflinching and deeply sympathetic portrait of a woman destroyed by self but also by exclusion and discrimination.
