Clare Mackintosh – Talk Cancelled

APOLOGIES FOR ANY DISAPPOINTMENT BUT DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED – BUT DO CHECK OUT CLARE’S BOOK IT IS A GREAT READ

Clare is a bestselling crime writer and former police officer – but she had another life in the Cotswolds as mother, wife and villager.

‘I have always loved the Cotswolds. I think I loved them even before I found them, in that half-formed ideal one has of where to put down roots. Somewhere peaceful, green, where the road meanders between drystone walls and from town to town, and a strip of blue bursts from brook to river and back again.’

For 8 years, Clare Mackintosh wrote for Cotswold Life about the ups and downs of life with a young family in the countryside. In this memoir she brings together all of those stories – and more – for the first time. From keeping chickens to getting the WI drunk, longing for an Aga to dealing with nits, Clare opens the door to family life with warmth and humour and heart.
