A Pastoral Trilogy with Tim Pears

Literary critics have applauded Tim Pears’ extraordinary feat of storytelling and drawn comparisons with Thomas Hardy’s pastoral novels. The novels elegantly transport readers to an agricultural world in Edwardian England through detailed historical accuracy and melodic prose.

Although Tim’s story is set in the West Country there are sure to be parallels drawn with the bucolic way of life in Ryedale before the First War. For fans of historical fiction, local history buffs or anyone who appreciates a beautifully told tale.

In Pears’s sentences, long and rolling as the hills they describe, and in his characters’ love for and familiarity with their settings, the English countryside and its fauna come to vivid life’ Claire Kohda Hazelton – The Observer
