“Anderby Wold” is a novel written by Winifred Holtby, first published in 1923. The novel is set in the rural landscape of Yorkshire, England, and it revolves around the lives of the inhabitants of Anderby Wold, a fictional village.

The story follows Sarah Burton, a young woman who inherits Anderby Wold farm from her father. Sarah is determined to make a success of the farm despite the challenges she faces as a woman in a male-dominated industry. She struggles with the traditional expectations placed upon her, particularly regarding marriage and motherhood, as she endeavors to assert her independence and carve out her own path in life.

Through Sarah’s journey, Holtby explores themes of gender roles, class dynamics, and the changing rural landscape in post-World War I England. The novel offers a richly detailed portrait of village life, depicting the interconnected relationships and struggles of its characters with warmth and empathy.

Winifred Holtby is also known for her feminist activism and social commentary, and these themes are evident in “Anderby Wold” as she addresses issues of women’s rights and societal expectations.
