Santrauka: Stephen Desmonde,a graduate of Oxford, has been brought up to follow in his father's footsteps and, eventually, to succeed him as rector of Stilwater. Instead, despite all entreaties to prevent him, he chooses to become an artist in paris. In the face of life's despairs, privations and humiliation, his struggle for recognitionnever wavers. This remarkably gripping, frequently tender novel is in the mould of Cronin's classic bestsellers.
