WHO'S ATTENDING?

Sarah Weston's brand new book, "From Sober Dress to Sturdy Boots" will be available at Lover Loves Books. This beautifully-illustrated book describes, in fascinating and witty detail, Sarah’s transformation from lawyer to horse-trainer, and the characters that she has met, both two-legged and four. If you are interested in the law courts, horses, ponies or the New Forest, then you are in for a treat! Sarah’s new motto is neither a borrower nor a lender be since she has poured her heart and soul into this book, to say nothing of the sleepless, sleep-less or sleep less nights fighting with one-hundred-and-thirty-one hyphens. The characters include Professor Street and the Yorkshire Ripper as well as local Agisters and William the Conqueror (just briefly). The word pony appears 143 times so you can’t go wrong but there’s also love and heart-break.

Our latest author is Barbara Hare: Born in a grass hut in Zimbabwe in 1928, the author was taken up into the ‘Big Game Country’ at a very early age by her father, camping amongst the wild animals. At the age of fifty, Barbara travelled overland with ‘Top Deck Travels’ on a double-decker bus from London to Kathmandu. This took 3 months and stimulated her enthusiasm for travelling rough. But it was after the death of her husband that she began her worldwide treks. She was accompanied by a veteran traveller whom she met just before setting off on her first trip to the Amazon basin, financing the expeditions by nursing convalescents in her own home, Augustus John’s studio. After completing more than 12 years of travelling worldwide, covering 25 countries, she called a halt to her escapades, her last trip being to Peru. She later hung up her boots to marry a retired doctor at the age of nearly 80. Describing those twelve years of travelling, she published “Rediscovering Myself”. “A Little Bus Ride To Kathmandu” describes her trip aged 49, which took three months and covered a total of 7,000 miles.
