The book was sent to me by the author herself and I am so grateful for receiving this.
The collection of short stories was so descriptive (especially for a person from overseas) that it brought England very close to me. Not just the physical description of coastal England but also the culture and people and most importantly the flora and fauna of rural England.
The sixteen short stories are emotional. They are also concise. A very difficult balance to maintain and one that is so for all the stories.
There is quite a bit of folklore, there is excellent characterization and the whole collection is brought totally to life and one felt one was actually living in the Suffolk countryside.
I loved the collection.
