Britain's best loved rural writer chronicles the progress of the seasons in the Stour valley village where he has lived and worked among artists, writers, farmers and, increasingly, commuters. For all the changes in the contemporary countryside, timeless qualities remain and both are captured here with a poet's understanding and imagination. The year takes its shape from the seasons of nature and the feasts and festivals of the Christian year. Each informs and illuminates the other in this loving celebration of nature's gifts and neighbourly friendship. Literature, poetry, spirituality and memory all merge to create an exquisite series of stories of our times. These short essays first appeared in the 'Word From Wormingford' column, a popular back page feature of the Church Times.

Ronald Blythe

Ronald Blythe CBE is considered one of the greatest writers on the English countryside. His work, which has won countless awards, includes Akenfield (a Penguin 20th Century Classic and a feature film). In 2006 he was awarded the Royal Society of Literature’s prestigious Benson Medal. His many columns for the Church Times, collected in ten volumes, described life at his home of Bottengoms Farm, Suffolk, where he lived and worked until his death in early 2023.
