Rhoda is milker woman.
She and Lodge were loved but they parted.
Rhoda knew Lodge will marry.
It is obscure story for me.
I feel a little afraid.
I think that people have envy and cruelty. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0194232492, Paperback)

A woman and a man ...words of love whispered on a summer night. Later, there is a child, but no wedding-ring. And then the man leaves the first woman, finds a younger woman, marries her ...It's an old story. Yes, it's an old, old story. It happens all the time today, tomorrow, a hundred years ago. People don't change. But this story, set among the green hills of southern England, has something different about it. Perhaps it is only a dream, or perhaps it is magic a kind of strange dark magic that begins in the world of dreams and phantoms ...
