Harriet Hume Rebecca West Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

In this modern fairy tale, Rebecca West transports her reader with a tale of the polar opposites of mind and spirit, love and power
 Harriet Hume’s unchanging beauty and commitment to her art stand in stark contrast to Arnold Condorex’s more worldly goals. After a romantic tryst, she discovers that she can read his mind, but Arnold, with his sights set on moving up in the world, quickly parts from the mysterious lady. As they encounter each other over the years, Harriet’s intuitive powers continue to unsettle Arnold, opening his eyes to the darker elements of his political and financial aspirations, even as he remains drawn to her. Beautifully drawn and filled with magical touches, West’s fantasy explores innate and learned gender roles, as her characters uncover the mystery surrounding their otherworldly connection.
