Excerpt from Susan Fielding

And this yearly dining-out was the solitary dissipation, the one act of social intercourse that broke Mr. Fielding's lonely existence. During the lifetime of his wife, whom he tenderly loved, he had been brought, perforce, if not into friendliness, into some degree of contact with his neighbors.

Mrs. Fielding, a quiet-tempered little woman, unrivalled in her pastry and damson-cheese, and regarding books much as the wife of an ironmonger would regard stoves or saucepans, made it a point of faith to air her best cap and hear the village gossip whenever opportunity offered; and on rare occasions would prevail upon her husband, very miserable in his dress-clothes, and with his song-books and violin under his arm, to accompany her to some of the village tea-parties. After her death, which happened when Susan was six years of age, he fell back at once and forever upon his own society. The morose nature of the man showing itself, said the village people among whom he lived, and yet from whose companionship he held himself so utterly, so suspiciously aloof.
