Susan Hill “herself has been calloused by painful experiences in her life”

Susan Hill

Writing in The Guardian, Danuta Kean states:

Hill herself has been calloused by painful experiences in her life. As well as the death of Lepine, she had several miscarriages after the birth of her first daughter, the novelist Jess Rushton, and lost her second child, Imogen, five weeks after she was born. A hand-painted box given to her at the time by the writer Bel Mooney remains a treasured possession. “However you lose a child,” she says, “all sorts of people come out of the woodwork and, even if the circumstances are different, tell you that it happened to them. It is a real human bond.
