Elegantly written with a sharp sense of place and the seasons * Independent on Sunday * 'Enchantment is the key word. One wonders whether this might be the book of a lifetime, with all its youthful vigour'Every page and paragraph says Blacker is a natural-born writer and teller of great tales' * Daily Telegraph * 'A lyrical description of an almost vanished way of life that many of us, stuck in traffic jams, in call-centre queues and behind supermarket trolleys, probably find ourselves sometimes hankering after' * Sunday Times * 'A vivid panorama of life in this 'great bubbling cauldron of magic' recounted with humour, poetry and compassion. Enchanted indeed' * Wanderlust * 'Warm and charming, providing a vivid picture of an immemorial culture in its final moments' * Country Life * This is an enthralling account of highs, lows and lessons learnt * Daily Express * 'Wonderful . . . A wild and captivating story' * Patrick Leigh Fermor *
