We have been on trains for over seven hours today and with occasional glances at the countryside, I have been buried in the best book I have read in a long time which I started in Paris and finished as we went through Truro, just ten minutes from home. It is ‘A Year of Marvellous Ways’ by Sarah Winman, a beautifully written and most evocative story that had me completely engrossed. It is set in Cornwall and is poignant, moving and utterly enchanting. Thank you to G for the recommendation.The French countryside is scattered with churches, rather hard to catch on camera when travelling so fast but this gives a flavour.The wonderful sculpture, Meeting Place by Paul Day, greets all those arriving at St Pancras from Paris. I love how the fabrics flow and the expressions on the faces of the two.
A Good Read, French Countryside and A Sculpture
