The little case is beside me on the bed, as are my two Jack Russells, who cuddle close, sensing my apprehension. I lift the lid to start my search into secrets of the past. A letter written and dated July 1917, France. WW1 comes alive. An emotional journey has begun...come with me.
It all begins with a box of duck eggs... and so too does this collection of tales of everyday rural life: in a restored sixteenth century country cottage, the joys of duck rearing and ownership, the mischievous antics of the resident Jack Russells, and a cockerel literally ruling the roost.
