First Review of BIG BLUE SKY!

By Published On: April 29, 2022Comments Off on First Review of BIG BLUE SKY!

Many thanks to Rowan Mantell for a lovely review of my latest book, BIG BLUE SKY – A Celebration of Norfolk, in NORFOLK magazine, where she is features editor.

Part of the review reads – Barrie was born in Norfolk and grew up in the years immediately after the Second World War, with a great love of local wildlife (so much that he carried mice in his pockets and kept leeches in his bedroom). Characters include his own childhood friends as well as ranging from Boudicca to Bernard Matthews, and Nelson to the Singing Postman. He promises Norfolk facts, figures and stories “and a few silly Norfolk jokes.” Coypus, Scottish drovers and Huguenots are also involved.

BIG BLUE SKY is one of six books that Rowan describes as a lovely read for a rainy day.

Now available from East Anglian book shops and Amazon online for £9.95, but obtainable from me for just £10 incl p&p. (UK only) Email me at barrie@barrielawrence.com
