  • It is January 2017. E.G. Rawlings, a noted foreign correspondent forced into retirement after a serious injury in the field, arrives by boat at a vacant mooring on the Thames. To his surprise, he finds it is owned by an old friend from Afghanistan, Isobel Mallinson, the widow of a British diplomat. On learning that Rawlings is now writing an account of his war experiences, Isobel allows him to use her mooring for the year he needs to finish his memoir. During the months that follow, Rawlings, suffering from PTSD and in terrible emotional and physical pain, gains solace in the peaceful life of the river and the community he finds there. Although a loner by nature, he becomes particularly close to Marnie, a middle-aged art teacher with a fragile heart who lives near him in the boathouse. He begins to tell Marnie his story, explaining the unexpected events that have resulted in what he calls ‘turning points’ in his life, taking him in surprising and new directions. Little does the jaded reporter realise that another turning point is just around the corner that will not only profoundly affect his life, but also the lives of all those around him.

When 10-year-old author Taylor Louise Rose’s godfather, Kevin, was rushed into intensive care suffering from Coronavirus, nobody thought he would survive. So bad was he that he was encouraged to ring his wife to say goodbye. Taylor adores her ‘Uncle Moose’ as he’s affectionately known, and when the excellent care and dedication of University Hospital Coventry’s doctors and nurses saved his life, Taylor resolved to thank them. And so she wrote The Rice Mice for the children of key workers (and others) to enjoy and to raise funds for NHS Charities.

  • Drawing on fables and yarns learned from the author’s youth to today and research of primary sources, the stories in Land, Lore, Legacies and Livelihoods weave a pathway through Axholme’s turbulent past. There are tales of war-time courage and survival; an in-depth history of The Epworth Bells and descriptions of famous and less well-known Islonians. There are accounts of events that went with a crash (and a bang); of the tribulations of staff and pupils alike in the Isle’s Victorian schools, and an acknowledgement of those who through resilience and toil bent the acres of Axholme to their will. Whether you come from a long-established Axholme family or have recently become an ‘Islonian’, this book reinforces what many know already – that the people, the landscape and its passage through time have made the Isle of Axholme one of Britain’s most unique places to live.
