A Ram in the Well: A Welsh Homecoming by June Knox-Mawer
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
I found June's account of her search for and discovery of a peaceful haven for herself and her family within the community of North Wales beatifully written. The writer shows integrity and sensitivity to the homeland that she clearly loves and had missed. Her love of the cottage and descriptions of the people within the community that she befriends and who warm to her are described with respect, sensitivity and insight.
I found this book almost poetic. June's skill as a writer is to bring each individual character alive with her empathy and understanding of them. Her love and connection with the cottage, landscape and community is powerful and moving. A lovely book, memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars reduntant therapist, 28 Nov 2002
As a therapist I am really impressed with Steven's humourous view of therapy, and slightly worried that I may now be out of a job! You can tell from reading this book, that there is insite from the "therapist" viewpoint, and from the "clients" experience of therapy. It's a tough job as a therapist, and even harder for the client, but reading this has given me a real buzz. Humour is vital in life, and I think this book is fantastic. I am chanting "I am a sexually attractive person"! You will have to buy the book to find out what I am talking about.
