Join Gordon Cope and his wife, Linda, as they discover the enchanting customs, cuisine and inhabitants of the most eccentric 12th-century village in the United Kingdom, where the internationally renowned Royal Regatta reigns supreme, a young George Orwell spent his formative years and one-time Beatle George Harrison lived from the 1970s until his death in 2001. Meet Edwina, the village gossip; Teddy, the former Second World War bomber pilot; and Allan, the genius inventor. Travel with them through the awe-inspiring Cotswolds, home to Iron Age relics and romantic country pubs. Experience the warmth of a rural English community, its pace of life dictated by the stately flow of the storied Thames River.

From battling destructive river floods to arresting boat thieves, from pounding back Pimm's at the exclusive Leander Club to exploring secret Spitfire fighter-plane factories, Gordon Cope takes you on a charming and disarming adventure through the world of John Bull. You'd be mad as a hatter not to enjoy this trip to Jolly Olde England!

About the Author:

Gordon Cope is the author of A Paris Moment and So, We Sold Our House and Ran Away to the South Pacific. A full-time writer and freelance journalist living in Calgary, Alberta, Gordon continues to travel the world with Linda, searching for memorable characters, rollicking adventures and expatriate experiences that North American readers and travelers dream about.

Review:

Gordon Cope's apparent quest to see the world a "moment" at a time has resulted in another entertaining book, this time chronicling the characters, culture and charm of a small community on England's Thames River.... The book is compelling reading throughout.-- Bob BlakeyFFWD Weekly
