Lark Rise to Candleford by Flora Thompson

Donated by Karen Logan, who says...

This book gave me a real taste of cottage life at the end of the 19th century. Told by Laura who grows from tiny girl to young adulthood throughout its pages. Recommended to me by my folk song tutor its a warm account of childhood, common folk, relationships, beliefs, work and survival. We can peek into a time before two world wars, before life and technology sped up. I sometimes wonder how people from a century ago would comprehend our ‘everyday’, here is a chance to wonder about them, turning towards a past so beautifully recored in these pages – enjoy!
