In this volume of abridged diary text Mary Hardy has moved to Letheringsett, near the Norfolk market town of Holt. Her husband William is now a freeholder, if only of 50 acres, and owner of the long-established maltings and brewery. In an early example of mechanisation of a village brewery he converts his manufacturing business to water power using the River Glaven. Early hopes are realised. The Hardys' elder son Raven, a studious boy of great promise, is articled to a lawyer. Their talented younger son William energetically launches himself into helping his father, and expands the variety of their brews. The local playhouse proves an attraction for the family. But Raven dies of tuberculosis aged 19, after months of anguished home-nursing. The set of four volumes is offered at a special price (ISBN 978-0-9573360-4-9), where you can read more about this lavishly illustrated and annotated edition of the diary.
