Program Description


The title for this month is The Death of the Heart, by Elizabeth Bowen

A piercing story of innocence betrayed set in the thirties, the orphaned Portia is stranded in her wealthy half-brother’s home in London where she meets the attractive, carefree cad Eddie. To him she is both a child and a woman and he fears her gushing love. When Eddie follows Portia to a sea-side resort, the flash of a cigarette lighter illuminates a stunning romantic betrayal.
