Their  
recommendation Growing up amongst the fields and woods and characters of the place, Laurie Lee lyrically and vividly depicts his childhood in a remote Cotswold village. This autobiographical work explores the relationship within his close-knit family, particularly with his adored mother and lovingly created characters from the book such as the warring grannies, the shell-shocked soldier, the eccentric uncles, and the cider-dispensing siren, Rosie. It reads like poetry and leaves me feeling as cheered as if I had been quaffing amber apple cider.
