Brother William is a kind-hearted 14th-Century monk gardener at Westminster Abbey responsible for providing food for the other monks. This diary of his year shows what happens month by month in delightful words and pictures. There are decorative endpapers of the Abbey and gardens, an introduction to the Abbey of Westminster and a note on the life of Benedictine monks - all meticulously researched, written and illustrated with warmth and humour by Westminster Abbey's very own Head Gardener. 'Brother William's Year by Jan Pancheri is a gorgeous book and offers an interesting lesson on medieval history for anyone. It will be useful not only for history lessons but also as away of demonstrating the 'journal writing' genre and the power of the first person voice. The print book is not in danger while works of this quality continue to be published by insightful publishers like Frances Lincoln.' - Dr Margaret Mallet, Judge of the English Association Awards To watch a video introduction of Brother William's Year from Park Ridge Public Library in Chicago click here
