Glimpses of Eden: field notes from the edge of eternity
‘The land has a long memory…it forgets nothing, waiting only for the opportunity to ease the heart.’
Glimpses of Eden is a seasonally-arranged collection of the very best of novelist Jonathan Tulloch’s acclaimed nature column, which ran in The Tablet for more than 10 years. In 96 evocative daily records of his exploration of the land, mostly within an hour’s bike ride of his North Yorkshire home, Jonathan captures snapshots of the wonders of the natural world. Here are eternal stories of resilience and beauty, hope and death, survival and renewal, a tapestry of miraculous creation to enrich our souls and deepen our understanding of life. Each reading is followed by a new reflection written for this book.
