The Death of the Heart Bowen, Elizabeth May 9, 2000

The Death of the Heart is Bowen’s most perfectly made book. Portia, an orphan, comes to live in London with her half-brother, Thomas, and his wife, Anna. A child of sin raised in a series of shabby French hotels, Portia is possessed of a kind of terrible innocence. Like Chance the Gardener in pigtails, she literally can’t comprehend evil or unkind motives.
