To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

Lost River

Lost River - Stephen Booth One of his better ones. Gets 4 stars because Dovedale and the Manifold valley are so lovely and because I once heard the author give a talk in Bakewell library and he was very engaging. I really enjoy the way he brings the story to life by involving the geography (not just geology and architecture) of the area. I have sometimes wondered if I enjoy the books so much because I know (and love) the Peak District so well, but this book is half set in Birmingham which I am not familiar with and it worked for me just as well.
