This is Liz's fourth novel after The Turning of the Tide, Fever: A Story from a Devon Village and The Memory Be Green: An Oral History of a Devon Village, which are all still selling well.
All Around The Year is a collection of 12 poignant stories, deeply rooted in the Devon landscape, and each linked to a month of the year from January through to December.
The reader is transported from a sleepy village square to the wilds of Exmoor and from a summer beach to the narrow streets of a small Devon town, and introduced to a variety of memorable characters.
Liz, pictured right, was born and brought up in Bideford and has a long Devon ancestry.
And on Saturday, August 31 at 2pm you can meet Kate Ellis who will be signing her new crime novel The Shadow Collector – the 17th Wesley Peterson novel at Torbay Bookshop. Torquay.
