Touch the Earth PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Touch the Earth free pdf A love story on a powerful horse stud in the mid-Shires of England at the turn of the century, Appleyard recognises equines are more than just servants, and describes with tenderness the bonding some of us have been lucky enough to know...that of a "horse of a lifetime." Life, death, scandal, suicide, mistrust, bitterness and deceit, are all here in this perceivable fiction which tells brilliantly how the living hell of the 1914-18 Great War cruelly blew apart almost every family in Britain, and of her Allies. Nothing good about war, her descriptives of wounded troops are almost too hard to read, but this is raw history, and read it we must: 'Lest We Forget.' But it's much more than just another war tale. Starting quietly like an Edwardian afternoon, as the narrative unfolds it's difficult to put down- and rewarding, in that you will learn details of how rural England once was. This description was written by Midge Todhunter, ex-National Hunt jockey, horseman, journalist and travel writer.

About Jennifer Appleyard

Jennifer Appleyard lives in a small village west of Nottingham with her husband David. They have two daughters and eight grand children who spend school holidays with them, riding and helping at shows with their rare breed White Park cattle. In the 1970s Jennifer first wrote the story of Elizabeth and James, inspired by her love of horses and her family's experiences during the Great War. In 2001 during the foot and mouth epidemic when activities were curtailed and the constant fear of the disease hung over them, she began to write again in earnest and, amongst other work, rewrote this story. She is currently working on a sequel.
