(1 Ratings)
Adult fiction. Ravenna is no longer young. In fact when she sees her own reflection, she feels as though she is turning into her mother, with whom she lived until the latter's death. She ekes out... More > a precarious living through the skills in her own hands, forced by ever-incoming bills to be always on the alert for new clients for her drawings and paintings. Edward has also reached his middle years. On the death of his mother he left the house they had shared for so long and moved closer to the university where he lectures in History.

Flowers for Alys By Irene M Redpath

"Flowers for Alys" is a tale from another time and another place. The time is in the distant past; the place is somewhere where a family could live an apparently normal, quiet life without... More > any of the pressures or the pleasures of our modern-day world. In the past events could be beautiful and wonderful, or terrible and tragic. Sometimes all together. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so they say. But that beholder must be careful to be looking in the right direction, and at the right time.< Less
Wild Honey By Irene M Redpath
Paperback: $9.60
Ships in 3-5 business days
"Wild Honey" tells the story of two people who met first as children, then grew up into different worlds. They met again years later, quite unexpectedly, as adults. After the passage of so... More > many years they might have had nothing in common, or everything. These things are unpredictable. No-one can really say where their story began, or how it might reach its end. Sometimes a "brief encounter" will last a lifetime. This is a story without a defined place in time, though I would suspect that the events described took place in the latter half of the twentieth century. There aren't many characters. You won't get lost, wondering who is who. It's a story told by one person, from one point of view, and the narrator tells the story simply, without any kind of detail which doesn't seem to matter. I don't want to upstage the narrator by telling you much more - I hope you'll want to read the book for yourself, and enjoy it.< Less
A Day to Go Gently By Irene M Redpath
Paperback: $9.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
This is the story of one woman’s life, as she remembers it on one day of the year. She has lived long enough to be daughter, wife, mother and grandmother, but today is alone with her... More > memories. Many of these memories are centred on her long years of love for one man, and his for her. It is the longest day of the year. I wrote this book quite quickly, earlier in the year of 2010. I had been working on something else when a voice came into my head and began to tell me this story. I wrote it down - and this is the result. As with all of my fiction, there are no real people in it! Or at least none that I know of. I hope you'll enjoy reading the book.< Less
St James the Less, Penicuik 1882 - 1982 By Irene M Redpath
eBook (PDF): $3.89
Download immediately.
The last chapter in the book goes into tremendous detail about the structure, ornamentation and furnishings of St James the Less; this chapter was written by Elinor Tavner for the Penicuik Historical... More > Society, who kindly agreed to its inclusion here. The first chapter and foreword were written by Angus Palmer, who was Rector in 1982. As well as some old photographs and postcards which have been added for this edition, a number of new photographs have been taken for the cover and interior by Jon Redpath. The original drawings created by Jon, our children and myself are reproduced here too. Well, the church is still there; still a beautiful building, a credit and an ornament to the memory and the dreams of those who have gone before. A hundred and twenty-seven years later the congregation still enjoy the stained glass and the music, and will, I imagine, go on doing so for a good while yet.< Less
When the Snow Refused to Fall By Irene M Redpath
Paperback: $11.51
Ships in 3-5 business days
This is a Christmas story of sorts, although it doesn't take place entirely at that time of year. It concerns young Tom, who loves Christmas, and his mother, who has reservations. Tom makes a... More > seasonal wish and conveys it to Father Christmas. Then he changes his mind . . . and the adults only complicate matters. This story will tell you whether or not Tom's wish came true. Reviews may be found at Lulu.com (paperback and eBook), at Amazon (Kindle edition) and at Goodreads, as well as collected from various sources at http://sites.google.com/site/imwrbooks1982/reviews (my own web pages). Sample chapters are also available at Lulu, Goodreads, Shelfari, Amazon and my own websites. Despite the Christmas content, this book is NOT suitable for young children, as it contains strong adult emotions.< Less

First published as part of the centenary celebrations for St James the Less Church, Penicuik, Midlothian, in 1982, this book tells the story of the beginnings of the church and congregation following...

The community may be small, but there are plenty of stories to tell from that first century - of plans and problems, people and prayer. This second edition has been revised, updated and had new (and old) photographs added for the next generation of readers, since another quarter-century has passed since the centenary itself. Black-and-white photographs and drawings throughout. Thanks for reading! Enjoy the book.< Less

WHITEOAK in the British census : 1881 By Irene M Redpath
eBook (PDF): $3.24
Download immediately.
This is the fifth in a series which will, I hope, eventually list every Whiteoak individual and family who have ever appeared in the British census, from 1841 to 1911. The years 1841, 1851, 1861,... More > 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911 have all now been published as e-Books; there may also be a paperback edition one day which will contain the complete set, if this would be useful. I am doing my best to correct errors and omissions as I go along. If you are looking for a relative in 1881, this list of households with at least one Whiteoak resident is as nearly complete as I can make it for now. Please note that these little books DO NOT contain the census images - only household lists, with my own corrections, notes and additions. However I hope they will make it easier for you to trace your ancestors, and buy the images from the usual sources should you want them. Happy hunting!< Less
