Cold Comfort Farm - Stella Gibbons:    "As is typical in a certain genre of romantic 19th-century and early 20th-century literature, each of the farm's inhabitants has some long-festering emotional problem caused by ignorance, hatred or fear, and the farm is badly run. Flora, being a level-headed, urban woman, applies modern common sense to their problems and helps them adapt to the 20th century."

Cold Comfort Farm    Stella Gibbons (1932) That rare thing: a satire that seems to have lasted better than its targets, among them DH Lawrence, and the serious source material of the now all but forgotten novelist MaryWebb. This earthy saga of Sussex rural life with Ada Doom, and the Starkadders including the lustful Seth, and the Church of the Quivering Brethren as experienced by the 19-year-old outsider Flora Poste continues to appeal to fresh generations.
