    A year in the life of a Gentle soul

    Mr Wigg is passionate about his orchard , children and grandchildren. Still mourning the death of his wife we follow a year of change for Mr Wigg as he comes to terms with his son selling up and moving away, his estrangement from his daughter and his relationship with his new neighbours. This is a sweet story, there are regrets and sorrows but also moments of joy and contentment. Mr Wigg's relationship with his grandvhildren is a delight as he teaches them to cook while like Sheherazhade he spins the long tale of the Peach Queen and the gardener. Running throughvthe story to oo is a thread about cricket for the year is 1971, the time of the controversy over South Africa and the Vietnam War also intrudes into Mr Wigg's circle. A delight of a book to be savoured.

    Mr wigg

    A beautiful story about love, life and growing old. The references to the orchard and the fruit trees was exquisite writing.

    Mr Wigg

    This read is for those with a love of gardening and tbe natural world. A book on relationships and the loss of lifetime partners. I saw my own father's story, the telling of stories by him to his children and grandchildren, wonderful imagination, gardening, talking to trees. The sudden death at home, all very similar. This is a gentle story.
