    Steve Hobson went blind about eight years ago. In adapting to his new life he searched for a retreat, somewhere quiet and peaceful that would allow him to relax. He attended a Sesshin at the Stonewater Zen Sangha. Stonewater Zen Sangha is a Zen Buddhist group based in Liverpool. Steve's book explains his life as a blind person, and what happens during a Zen Buddhist retreat. It is a warm, well-written, account that will inspire the listener.

    George Forsdike ran a nursery garden at Shrublands, Suffolk, England for nearly 50 years, specialising in chrysanthemums and other cut flowers that he sent to Covent Garden to sell. Shrublands changed from a country manor house to a health farm, where many famous people came to rest and recuperate. George tells of his life, working quietly on the four acres of his garden, together with his wife Claire.
