Another wonderful book about Ann's relationship with her husband in the last years of his life. This is the follow up to 'Three-three, two-two, five-six', which was about when Philip was in hospital. This is about when he returned home and it has a more gentle rhythm to it as they don't have to deal with so much unpredictability. It is more prose than poetry and there is much of their enjoyment of literary references.

Ann Drysdale ends the book with the words she spoke at her husband's funeral. These include a quote from the death of Falstaff which is evocative of the tenderness of this whole book, not only towards her husband but his and their houses and the part of Wales they lived in.

What comes across in her books is the care she took of her husband, to make, in the words of one of her poems, his 'Going Light'.

I'm not entirely comfortable with saying that I liked this book, not because I didn't, but because of the subject.

The story was heart-rending and emotional - even though the author tried to mask it with some humour it was still very raw and real, which made me feel for the couple even more.

It was beautifully written in a mixture of poetry and prose, and I could easily relate to Ann and Philip throughout.

Thought-provoking and current; definitely worth reading.
