Katherine Watson: A life of poetry, faith, and love

ByCarolyn M. King

A deeply engaging book about a poet, a faithful and sensitive friend, whose magnetic personality enlightened everyone around her and saved many from despair, but at huge hidden cost. Katherine’s own words, extracted from her letters and journals written over 70 years, will appeal to a wide audience of people interested in the traditional genre of literary letters, local history and biography, and in frank, perceptive, occasionally hilarious and always immediate descriptions of life as she lived it, from pre-war high-life in Petersfield (Hampshire, UK) through her war service in the WRNS, to her famous bookshop in Burford, Oxfordshire. It also has an element of mystery, a sort of murder story with no body, a crime without a criminal except the simple, well-meaning interactions of good people being themselves. "A fascinating biography.....a massive and vibrant achievement, and a touching story". John Fuller, Emeritus Fellow, Magdalen College, Oxford
