Capitulation and recapitulation, and in flashbacks Mary Hallard, nee Hanks, successful novelist, looks back over fifteen years of her love for York, the boy back home. She had learned, from her dying father, of his killing the town tanker, and despairing of any chance of happiness with York, she runs away from the mid western home of her childhood without a word to him, and infrequent meetings through the years never bring out the truth. Finally, after fifteen years, she returns to him, and learns of her father's innocence—and bygones are bygones.—Kirkus Reviews. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Ostenso, Martha

Author Image

Martha Ostenso (1900-1963) was an American author and screenwriter. Born in Norway, her family emigrated to Manitoba, but eventually settled in the U.S. Midwest. She studied at the University of Manitoba where she met another author, Douglas Durkin whom she married in 1945. They moved to New York where she continued her studies at Columbia University. Ostenso is best known for her critically acclaimed first novel, "Wild Geese". The book is set in rural Manitoba and is known as a landmark work in the new field of literary 'realism'. She adapted the book into a movie which was released in 1927. Ostenso published about a dozen more novels but none achieved as much notoriety as her debut work.
