  The Writing on the Hearth - Cynthia Harnett
by easyoar
 
 

This is not a tip on any shop in Ewelme (there are hardly any to talk of!). Rather it is something you should buy before you go there.

Cynthia Harnett is an award winning children's writer, and this book (The Writing on the Hearth) is based in and around Ewelme about the time of Duchess Alice in 1415. It is obviously a historical novel, but I remember it being quite good for adults too (it's been a long time since I read it!)

If you have read my tip on the school, you will see the front cover appears to have a picture of the school on it.

What to buy: I'm not sure if it is still in print, it was first published in 1971, but you can still find copies on ebay...

What to pay: A few pounds
