Ronald Blythe invites us into the company of his neighbours and friends to hear his reflections on the natural and local history, the liturgy, stories, village events and gossip that shape and unite their lives. Though intimately local, his voice is that of a poet, transcending boundaries of place and time with a universal appeal. 'Man of letters, man of faith, Suffolk man: Ronald Blythe is all of these.' Tiimes Literary Supplement

"In one sens this is a book to nurture the soul of country dwellers. In another sense this is a book to re-inspire confidence in the potential of the teaching ministry of the rural church when the ministry of preaching is placed in capable lay hands." Leslie Francis, University of Wales, Bangor, RURAL THEOLOGY, Vol.3 Part 1, 2005, Issue 64.
