. . . . though this one is framed differently. It's hung on the peg of the history of Bottengoms Farmhouse where RB lives, but really it's pretty much the same as all the Church Times column books and the others he's published lately. Which is, of course, a strong recommendation.

But if you haven't read any of Blythe's recent books then I hope you'll be pleasantly surprised by his sense of history, sense of place, affinity with nature and the seasons, and intimate writing style. These are not dramatic books in any way, but reflective, philosophical looks at the small pleasures of rural existence. For me they're like relaxing in a warm bath with a glass of good red wine, and this volume is no different, apart from the well-chosen illustrations.

Refreshing and poetic,going into a depth of relevant historic detail and knowledge that invites revisiting the house time and time again.I feel myself making my way down the ancient track to Bottomgoms (The Yeomans House ) and sensing its place through the ages.

I have read and enjoyed Ronald Blythe's books and this one is no exception. His writing is almost like painting you can visualise his descriptions. I have most of his books on my shelf and he is one of the few authors whose books I can keep re-reading and always find fresh and interesting.

My love of Suffolk can only be enhanced by this contribution to the literature about the county which has had its' share of authors and poets.
