‘Exquisitely observed, this highly charged and affecting novel takes us on an epic journey with larger than life characters and animals that experienced extraordinary brutality during a devastating war, along the way asserting the importance of individual stories against a backdrop of loss on an enormous scale. Humane, poignant and gripping, What the horses heard is a must-read novel for the centenary of World War I.’ JF

    How I wish I could come, but sadly I can’t. I’m sure it will be a great success.

    • It’s far too far for you to come and I’d give anything to be at the launch of your amazing slate book. Good luck for that. It sounds so wonderful I am really envious.

    Finally got round to ordering A Handful of Water and reserved a copy of What the Horses heard, I’ll keep you posted on my favourite poems. I was born in Poole, Dorset and have explored the whole of South Western England over the years, while living in South Western France. Devon and Cornwall are a lot like our Basque country on the coast.
