Book Description:
Long recognised as Britain’s greatest living rural writer, Ronald Blythe draws together literature, poetry, spirituality and memory which all merge to create an exquisite commentary on our times that is at once celebratory and elegiac. In this eleventh and final collection of his beloved 'Word from Wormingford', Ronald Blythe opens us our eyes to the small miracles that happen everywhere in ordinary life. With a poet’s deftness he gives us language with which to speak about the experiences that touch every life, but so often leave us speechless – life’s great joys and its incomprehensible sorrows. His writing awakens us to the colours and scents of the seasons and the weather, lets us listen to the myriad remembered conversations stored in his attic mind, evokes the smell of old books and all the memories they conjure up, and shows us how to be thankful for the inestimable blessing of simple routine.

Book Description:
With reverence and love, Britain’s most admired rural writer chronicles daily life in the Stour valley village, finding beauty and significance in its sheer ordinariness as well as in its many literary, artistic and historic associations. The year takes its shape from the seasons of nature and the feasts and festivals of the Christian year. Each informs and illuminates the other in this loving celebration of nature’s gifts and neighbourly friendship. Literature, poetry, spirituality and memory all merge to create an exquisite series of stories of our times. These delightful essays first appeared in the ‘Word From Wormingford’ column, a popular back page feature of the Church Times for some 20 years.

Book Description:
This publication continues Ronald Blythe's celebrated Word from Wormingford, though with a difference. For here, a village record moves further into the personal life of a writer who is not only a working part of the small community to which he has belonged for so many years, but who in many respects is isolated from it. Intimacy and distance are revealed as having their contrasting places in this both imaginative interpretation of the English countryside at the close of the 20th century.
