A Collection of Letters and Illustrations by Rosemary Harward.


'Keeping in Touch' is a collection of Christmas letters from 1984 to 2015 by Rosemary Harward, author of 'Morning Has Broken' and 'The Christmas Phoenix'. Rosemary writes the Christmas letter you would look forward to receiving. The letters commence soon after the point at which Morning Has Broken finished. We follow Rosemary’s post-farming life with the man she met and married, Richard. These letters recount the fortunes and adversities of her new life; her growing family; their domestic, professional and respective families’ problems; all told with unflinching honesty and humour. We accompany Rosemary through all of life’s vicissitudes from unemployment to an unexpected inheritance; to five changes of address; and a host of births, illnesses, deaths, and holidays. These letters map Rosemary’s life in annual stages for over thirty years, and what an interesting life it has been!
