The Two Saras Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5

I loved this book The Two Saras and was totally glued to each page. Such a lovely read and being reminded of how hard life was at times and how they managed each day with Samuel taking such long trips away from his family in order to complete his writing. Very well written – I didn’t want it to end.

Living at Greta Hall with my children for the past 20 years I’ve always had a sense of following in the footsteps of great women. Bethany has breathed life into those woman and I now walk the long corridors, enter rooms and look out of windows with a deeper understanding of those who have gone before me – Thank you Bethany.

Another great read! What a saga and so well depicted with great insight by the author. Such very challenging lives for all concerned but the fruit lives on with the work of the two great poets.

Many thanks for sending me The Two Saras:  Coleridge in Cumbria.  I had just read the Extraordinary Years, and felt the need to read on, since it was such an enjoyable read.  

My walking group and I are continuing with Part 2 of The Coleridge Way walking from Roadwater to Porlock this coming week.  We did Part 1 Nethey Stowey to Roadwater in 2019, and had to cancel Part 2 of our walk twice due to Covid.  

It was just by chance I bought Somerset Life recently, and saw the Extraordinary Years reviewed.  I have put both books forward for my Book Club to read, and my Walking group. It really has helped put everything into perspective, and I will be able to appreciate my walks even more.

A really excellent read.  I couldn’t put the books down!

With Best Wishes
