Derek Tangye has enriched the lives of thousands through his delightful Minack Chronicles,about his life in a clifftop cottage in Cornwall.His best-selling 'Jeannie' was a 'brave,moving and loving tribute' (Sunday Express) to his wife who shared that life with him until she died in 1986; and all who read it will have wondered how he would cope on his own. 'The Evening Gull' is their answer.Derek Tangye faced the sense of unreality common to the newly bereaved.He had to learn to cope with sorrow and loneliness,and begin the slow,painful steps towards recovery. The necessity to be practical provided a welcome distraction and - though beset at times by sudden waves of sadness - he was sustained by the kindness of friends,a deluge of letters and the solicitousness of his cats, Ambrose and Cherry; and he was cheered,too,by the arrival of a new donkey,Susie,to be the companion of Merlin. But his principal motivation was the realisation of Jeannie's dream: to preserve Minack for posterity,beautiful and unspoilt,by setting up the Minack Chronicles Trust.And as he gradually readjusted he came to know that in a way Jeannie remained beside him - her spirit pervades Minack still.Derek Tangye conjures up the enchantment of Minack,a buffer against his sadness - but he also writes of the modern cares that everyone has to face.'The Evening Gull' is an inspiration: intensely moving,yet full of courage,wisdom and hope. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its compensation rates too! So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,because of the lighter weight and value of this item,for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
