Happy Valley is a place of dreams and secrets, of snow and ice and wind.  In this remote little town, perched in its landscape of desolate beauty, everybody has a story to tell about loss and longing and loneliness, about their passion to escape.  I must get away, thinks Dr Oliver Halliday, thinks Alys Browne, thinks Sidney Fulow.  But Happy Valley is not a place that can be easily left, and White's vivid characters, with their distinctive voices, move bit by bit towards sorrow and acceptance.'
