    1. I've had the pleasure of being edited by Jan when she's wearing her other hat so I was really looking forward to reading her work,(red pen at the ready!;) But to sum up my thoughts in one sentence: This book of short stories is just lovely. Although set primarily in the 1960s, Edwards paints a delightful picture of rural life (as seen through the eyes of a child) that had probably existed in one form or other for centuries. The village/countryside and the lives of those who live there there are [...]

    2. A wonderful jaunt through Sussex following the life of Susie Birch. I didn't know what to expect when picking up Sussex Tales, sometimes these kinds of compilations can be bitty and trite. But what I got was a handful of heart warming anecdotes from young Susie Birch who lives on a farm with her mum, dad and big brother Len. Starting in the spring and finishing with a snap shot of Christmas Jan Edwards creates a believable and lovable village life. Included at the end of every chapter is a recip [...]

    3. I absolutely love this book, having grown up in the Cheshire countryside 30 years after this story (or rather collection of stories) was set I was amazed at just how similar country living around the UK and over three decades was. The book provides a wonderful sense of nostalgia, and personally for me it brought back my own memories of country fairs at schools, Sunday school and the angry bull in the field. This book isn't just for people who grew up in Sussex, or for people who grew up next doo [...]

    4. Sussex Tales is a collection of stories set in Sussex, with the addition of some interesting recipes and folklore to boot. The narrator is the young Susan, who at times demonstrates that she’s a little bit wiser than her years.This collection that easily could be a twee and saccharine toe-dip into a time gone by has a darker edge to it. Instead of, oh wasn’t it jolly when people still spent ha’pennies and made their own country wines, we have stories with truth at the heart.The first chapt [...]

    5. I’m a Sussex gal, through and through – maternal blood from the East – paternal from the West. From the moment I opened the pages of Jan Edwards’ Sussex Tales I was plunged into a state of nostalgia so strong I could taste the honey, smell Autumn’s mulchy wet woods and not least, hear the familiar dialects of old – that lazy Sussex burr of my grandparents and beyond. The author presents a palette of memories from her childhood, growing up in the farming countryside of the 50s and 60s [...]
