Gates of Paradise

I guess that many people on here will have already read this, but my favourite book from the village phone box is ‘Gates of Paradise’ by Beryl Kingston. I have been an admirer of William Blake for many years and was delighted to find that Beryl depicted his character exactly as I had imagined him. If anyone hasn’t yet read this book, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed if you can find the time to read it.

    • The story is set during Blake’s time at the cottage in Felpham. I’ve since spoken to Beryl, and she informs me that the anecdotes surrounding Hayley on horseback (who Blake worked for) are taken from historical information. Beryl really does research her subjects and this shows in her writing.
