DescriptionThis colourful evocation of Christmas in Cheshire will enliven many an evening around a blazing fire. Wonder at the Mayor of Chester's sumptuous banquet where the tables groan under the sheer weight of food; experience the joy of the newly-wed Reverend and Mrs Brandt as they arrive on a frosty Christmas Eve at Gawsworth Rectory, their new home; feel your flesh creep at the tales of the ghosts of Christmas past which haunt the eerie country house at Poulton Lancelyn in the Wirral; spare a thought for the poor farmer to whom Christmas is just a week with three Sundays in it; ride with the whipper-in of the Cheshire Forest Hunt on a Boxing Day meet that went perilously wrong; and follow the Duke of Westminster's gamekeeper in a taxi cab full of cards and gifts, as he struggles across Cheshire to deliver them all in time for Christmas. So, shut out the cold night, draw the curtains and put another log on the fire. Then settle down in the warmth to enjoy this enthralling anthology of A Cheshire Christmas, the perfect stocking filler for all who know and love the county.
