No I suppose not People move away grow older die and the bright belief that there will be another marvelous thing around each corner fades It is now or never we must snatch at happiness as it flies”Do we recognize happiness when we live it? Or is it a condition we only perceive in retrospection remembering the past through the rose tinted glasses of memory?Wales 1978 Thomas Birkin a survivor of the Great War travels back in time to the 1920s and reconstructs a month spent in the rural village of Oxgodby North Yorkshire Employed to recover a concealed medieval painting on the wall of the local church Thomas believes that a change of scenery will soothe the scars the bloodbath of war and a shattered marriage have imprinted on him Regardless of his skeptical attitude towards religion the placid rhythm of summer days ripened by the sun and the quaint temperament of some of the townspeople will guide him

First of all it takes tranquility And so often the happiest days of our life are those when nothing crucial happenedSo a month in the country was a real treat to the protagonist and A Month in the Country is a real treat to a readerWell we all see things with different eyes and it gets you nowhere hoping that even one in a thousand will see things your wayThe novel is also a deepest contemplation on the nature of art and history and the harmony of lifeWe can ask and ask but we can't have again what once seemed ours for ever – the way things looked that church alone in the fields a bed on a belfry floor a remembered voice a loved face They've gone and you can only wait for the pain to passHuman kindness
