The Great Western Beach - A Memoir of a Cornish Childhood Between the Wars written by Emma Smith performed by June Barrie on Audio CD (Unabridged)£99.99

The Great Western Beach is Emma Smith's wonderfully atmospheric memoir of a 1920s childhood in Newquay, Cornwall.

Had there been no Great War, there would have been no Hobbit, no Lord of the Rings, no Narnia, and perhaps no conversion to Christianity by C. S. Lewis.
