Here Comes the Moon
A Country Collection by Margaret Blair

This is a collection of clear-eyed, often humorous and always affectionate essays about the rural community where the author lives: the local wildlife, people who make a difference and daily life in general.

“… a charming mix of stories”

—US Review of Books

“Margaret Blair’s powers of description are impressive. This is a book of great charm.”

—Bettyjane Wylie CM, award winning author

“Here Comes the Moon is informative, charming and at times very funny.”

—Jennifer Glossop, editor and author

“It is a delight! Both the prose pieces and the poems are so accessible and quietly wise. I like too the quirky illustrations.”

—Lesley Duncan, The Herald, UK
