Sublime and lovely,
This review is from: The Bookshop That Floated Away (Paperback)
As fluid and clear as the water upon which it sales, the writing of this book is gently witty, touching and, quite literally, "sails" its readers into its world.
This is a book which reads like a modern fairy-tale, yet is never whimsical or clichéd. It is not just a recount of a bookshop but a book that challenges us all to consider our dreams and to wonder what would happen if we followed them. Set against a backdrop of waterways, the book allows us to see rural England from the viewpoint of its waterways: we see the reality of following dreams and also, first-hand, the problems and the issues these present.
This is truly a lovely book and is warmly recommended.

Sounds like a good read Prunella Scales and Timothy West just introduced me to, with a long eared rabbit as an extra, my Principal HoDept is a canal enthusiast for Landscape Architecture and the engineer structures staff were keen on established stable structures as we know from years of British Waterways and fishing enthusiasts bird watchers and general geese migration which we now have locally at Port's Head dock and some seen Thames Henley. Excellent description of life and wildlife enabled by geotechnical and hydrogeology, our cat fell into spare canals Cardiff so he ended up rehoused with us, not keen on ducks but afeared of little else, friend to engine mechanics enthusiast dust mud grease car self service men so I guess this book will open up a picture of life for a Bunnyparte.
