(From the publisher):
The five-novel sequence The Children of Violence
is the cornerstone of Doris Lessing's work. Remarkable in its breadth of treatment and depth of understanding, it traces the life of one woman, Martha Quest, but it is also about Western society in a time of crisis.
This, the third novel in the sequence, continues the story of Martha Quest. As the reader follows Martha through her emotional entanglements and her deepening involvement with revolutionary politics, a magnificently panoramic picture of twentieth-century life emerges, compassionate yet uncompromising in the fierce integrity of the author's vision.
Original title: A Ripple from the Storm
