Product description

Product Description

Mairin, a former WWI nurse married to a wealthy and dangerous man, embarks on a reckless love affair with a social outcast. During the course of their affair, she tells the following story:

A father on a spiritual quest of his own abandons his daughter to the negligent care of wealthy relatives. Returning to England he tries to orchestrate a comfortable marriage for her despite her intention to become a painter. In an act of rebellion she joins the war effort.

Deeply traumatized by her experiences as a nurse in France and the deaths of her family in the influenza epidemic of 1919, she finds herself penniless and friendless in the libertine post-war era. Attempting to quiet her demons she falls into frenzied sexual promiscuity until she meets an unforgiving and powerful man. However she finds that her past will continue to haunt her until she can finally put it to rest.

A beautifully written meditation on sexual obsession, religious mania, power and betrayal, Meridian follows one woman as she overcomes her blighted family history to experience enlightenment and ultimate forgiveness.
