Under A Broad Sky
This is another collection of Ronald Blythe’s wonderful essays arranged to follow a calendar year of rural life on the Essex Suffolk border. Each piece is a distillation of his experience, observations and reflections and makes the ordinary happenings of a normal day resonate with the richness of his long life. He describes the changing activity of the birds and local wildlife, working in his garden with the companionship of the ever faithful white cat and his travels across the country. Whether it is getting lost in Ipswich or watching a very old bee keeper calling down a swarm of bees from the nave of a church, to everything Ronald Blythe brings a fresh eye and an interesting reflection.
