Book of the Month

The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry, £8.99, which is highly recommended by Janine Monaghan.   It is a Victorian Gothic novel set in the village of Aldwinter in Essex – but don’t be put off; it is a charming and uplifting yarn.  We follow the adventures of Cora, a naturalist, who, liberated by the death of her husband, goes off in search of the Essex Serpent.  She becomes friends with the Ransomes, in particular the Rector William. It is a beautifully written book, teaching us empathy and the value of listening to others.

Canon Stockton will be hosting a discussion on the book on Tuesday 18th July at 7.30pm at 1 Cathedral Close - please email to book your place.
