When Chris told us that this month’s author would be Henry Williamson, my heart sank a little. I’ve read a fair bit of Williamson but he is not among my favourite writers. In the event, I was reasonably fascinated by the book, though not always in ways that the author intended. This book is one of his many attempts to redefine his life. It covers the period that he had previously written about in The Pathway (1928, last part of the novel-sequence collected, with revisions, as The Flax of Dream in 1936), and later dealt with in It was the Nightingale (1962) and The Innocent Moon (1961), novels 9 and 10 in his long and ambitious Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight series.
