A Year in Lush Places

Posted on Updated on

ImageA Year in Lush Places, the novella written by Dorset author Maddie Grigg, is flying off the shelves in the village’s community shop.

The book takes an affectionate look at village life and is inspired by The World from my Window blog stories from Broadwindsor.

Says this reviewer on Amazon: ‘This book about the “enchanted village” is truly enchanting. Full of humour, love and good natured gossip about her neighbours. I fell in love with both Maddie Grigg and the people who reside in this remote Dorset village. Based on true life and real people, to whom she gives nicknames, the author makes ordinary rural living extraordinary. My favourite book of the year.’

The book is set in election year and there are cameo appearances by West Dorset MP Oliver Letwin and other political candidates.

The book is available in paperback and on Kindle and can be ordered from bookshops or online via Amazon.

The World from My Window was recently chosen by Saga magazine as one of the top 50 blogs by people over 50.

Maddie Grigg is the pen name of Broadwindsor Jubilee Group joint secretary Margery Hookings, who, with her husband, Andrew, is about to return to the village after spending a year on the Greek island of Corfu.
