To Every Thing There is a Season by Jude Daly


To Every Thing There is a Season by Jude Daly

The well-loved words of Ecclesiastes take on new life and meaning in the sun-baked rural setting of a South African homestead. Sowing, planting and reaping through the temperamental wet and dry seasons, going to market, day-to-day dealings with neighbours and acquaintances, love and hostility, the joy of celebration and sadness of mourning with family and friends - Jude Daly shows an ageless world in miniature, jewel-like detail and colour. Accompanied by familiar text from the King James Bible, this book could become a contemporary classic, to be enjoyed by young readers and Bible-lovers everywhere.
