The Flint Anchor by Sylvia Townsend Warner

John Barnard, an East Anglian merchant is a man of lofty morality who fears nothing but God, an emotion which sours his life and that of his family. Warner has a keen eye for the malevolence and flaws of the soul, yet she absorbs us totally in the personalities and daily concerns of her characters, unheroic though they may be.
Sylvia Townsend Warner was born in Middlesex.
