I love Ronald Blythe's writings. How he combines the seasons, the lives of Christian Saints, church calendar, writers, painters, musicians and everyday life into a short article is amazing. It makes for an easy, natural spirituality to be experiences by the reader.

I bought this book to read aloud to my stepmother over the Christmas holidays. She is a nature-lover now house-bound and with poor sight so it seemed appropriate. It turned out to be perfect - short beautifully written evocative pieces, full of this writer's detailed observation, good humour and loving appreciation of the scenes and people around him. And after a week of reading maybe two excerpts a day, there is still plenty left for my next visit.
