Journal Entry 1 by FreeRangeHuman from Ripon, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Monday, December 12, 2022
Tom Birkin, a veteran of the Great War and a broken marriage, arrives in the remote Yorkshire village of Oxgodby where he is to restore a recently discovered medieval mural in the local church. Living in the bell tower, surrounded by the resplendent countryside of high summer, and laboring each day to uncover an anonymous painter's depiction of the apocalypse, Birkin finds that he himself has been restored to a new, and hopeful, attachment to life. But summer ends, and with the work done, Birkin must leave. Now, long after, as he reflects on the passage of time and the power of art, he finds in his memories some consolation for all that has been lost.

We are walking part of the South West Coast Path, 3 years late due to Covid and other delays. I have been saving thin books in order to release them along the way. I enjoyed reading this book.
