Cheap Day Return

R. F. Delderfield

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Classic fiction (pre c 1945)

Delderfield's magnificent novel of an affair that will corrupt a young man forever.

Kent Stuart left the West Country town of Redcliffe Bay more than thirty years ago, pursued by the guilt and shame of a scandal that cost him his youth and happiness.

Having led an exciting life as a photographer, Kent now returns to find a town that bears little physical resemblance to the one he left so many years before. Yet in spite of this, memories come flooding back of a young man swept up in a passionate affair with an older woman, which ended in tragedy.

And Kent must decide whether, by revisiting Redcliffe Bay, he can come to terms with the past and start anew.
