Jane Bailey Visit

We were very lucky today to receive a visit from a lovely author friend of ours, Jane Bailey. She is shown in the photo with close friend John.

Jane is the author of two books we have sold consistently since we took over the shop, Tommy Glover's Sketch of Heaven and Mad Joy.

They are also two of my favourite books.

There has not been a better war-time tale about a child evacuated into the countryside, since Goodnight Mr. Tom, than Tommy Glover's Sketch of Heaven and the mystery that is central to Mad Joy makes the pair of them equals.

If you've not tried either, be in touch soon as Jane was kind enough to sign a few copies of both books for us.

Jane has a site on which you can find a short video made here in the shop by Sky Arts.
