Product description
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. For all the changes in the contemporary countryside, timeless qualities remain and both are captured here with a poet's understanding and imagination.
Product Reviews

'It is a delight ... Blythe integrates beautifully the cycling of seasons and generations with the cycling of the church year ... His thoughts pleasantly unfurl, and appropriately for [Blythe's] immersion in English literary history, they do so poetically ... His immediate surroundings are an obvious inspiration, but Blythe is also as familiar with England's artistic and literacy landscape ... as he is with the landscape of his local community and his native Suffolk.' -- Nick Mattiske 2008
