About The Time of Man:

From Pulitzer Prize nominee Elizabeth Madox Roberts comes The Time of Man, a powerful and arresting Southern American classic. Set at the turn of the century during the pioneering era, it tells the story of Ellen Chesser, a strong young woman with a mind of her own. She and her family travel from one small community to another in rural Kentucky, eking out a living as itinerant farmworkers. Initially she feels isolated and lonely, resenting the hardship of her life and longing to be with her childhood friends. Yet slowly she learns what it means to fall in love and forges lasting friendships with other young people at the local dances. She is left stunned, therefore, when the man she is to marry comes to her to confess a dark secret. His past is shameful to him and heartbreaking for her, but Ellen’s independent spirit and strength of character sustain her in the aftermath.
