    About the Author

    Irene M. Redpath

    I have several books in print, but they re a mixed bunch I have some on family history, one on the history of a church and community in the Scottish Borders, and some fiction and poetry So I don t seem to fit into any particular genre I write what takes my fancy and or comes into my head at the time.Six are now available at , in Kindle format, or at Lulu in paperback or e editions St James the Less, Penicuik 1882 1982 non fiction St James the Less is a history, very local, but very thoroughly researched, with lots of pictures old and new There s a good amount of social history in there, I think, along with the ecclesiastical content.Wild Honey 2009 fiction about people but not a romance, I m told No HEA Wild Honey may be my favourite, if I m allowed to have a favourite, and I still read it and am still surprised by it One particular section makes the hair on the back of my neck prickle every time I reach it This one was written in two halves, over twenty years apart.A Day to Go Gently 2010 fiction a woman s memories of her life, from childhood on a farm through love and marriage to old age A Day to Go Gently , by contrast, was written quite quickly a couple of years ago, simply because every time I put down my keyboard, the next bit would begin to write itself into my head It s not a perfect book, but I m not ashamed of it And I think it displays the heroine s own character in its imperfections.All are quite short, portable and I hope are good to read The next three have all been offered as Giveaways, and attracted favourable reviews Flowers for Alys 2010 is a story set further back into the past, in a time when life was simpler and deadly It s now available from for the Kindle, but can be found at Lulu as a paperback or an e Book, like the others When the Snow Refused to Fall was published in 2011, and tells a story filled with the magic and the beauty of Christmas, but with a darker undertone It s a tale for grown ups, although young Tom, aged six, takes a major part.My latest book is In the Image of Ravenna 2012 This one tells a complex tale, or rather it tells two at once, with the stories each taking a place and then stepping back to let the other take its turn It involves history, painting and drawing, research and Things which are important in my own life, really.More details of the above can be found here at For my other books, look me up at lulu or , or my own website.Thanks for putting up with me, and reading this far

      A serene potted history of this community church. Lots of gentle quips and great cartoons. I can almost picture the minutes of the meeting taking place and the newsletters. Hope to stop off one day on my way to Edinburgh and have a look. And of course for me, I liked the finance bits.

      "St James the Less" is a history, very local, but very thoroughly researched, with lots of pictures old and new. There's a good amount of social history in there, I think, along with the ecclesiastical content.
