Talking with Neighbours: Conversations from a Country Parish

£9.99

Product description

Ronald Blythe invites us into the company of his neighbours and friends to hear his reflection on the natural and social history, the liturgy, stories, village events and gossip that shape and unite their lives. Though intimately local to the group of villages along the Essex bank of the Stour, whose churches he serves as a Reader, Ronald's Blythe's voice is that of a poet, transcending boundaries of place and time with a universal appeal. Ancient churches have for centuries provided places where the life and experiences of local communities can be explored, and contemporary voice heard. Ronald Blythe, in these exquisite observations on the beauty and truth to be found in simple things, is truly a voice for own times.
Book in very good condition with dust jacket also in good condition. Minor edgewear to the dust jacket on the top. Firmly bound with no markings to the text or illustrations inside.
