This is an extraordinary novel, a series of short stories linked in wonderfully inventive and intricate ways. The reader is taken through the decades, seeing choices and consequences. Betrayal, passion, love, tenacity, brittleness, and love... Everything is underpinned by that.
I loved this book. It absorbed me into different times and worlds, and left deep impressions in a number of ways.
I loved this book. Taking as the starting point an unsustainable agri-business model that will be familiar to anyone who follows 'contemporary' British agriculture practice, the book charts the progress of a farm towards a nature-friendly destination.
The writing is quite beautiful in its description of nature, in hundreds of different ways. The passion of the author clearly shines through, and I hope that other land owners have been inspired as a result.
I finished this book on a trip to the Abergavenny area, like much of Wales over-grazed and an ecosystem desert. There is so much for us to learn and appreciate from nature, and this book has been an amazing insight into possibility.
