It's said that Ireland is a land of stories and story-tellers. In Rev. Dorothy's early days she would sit at the kitchen table, reading by oil lamp, or around the fireside, with the kettle ever on the boil, ready to make a pot of tea for family, friends or neighbours who dropped in. So now she invites you to drop in, sip your tea, and warm yourself by the fire, as she shares some short tales that go up hills, down valleys and around many corners. The hearth illustrated is in the Northern Ireland home of her late friend from teenage years, beside which she spent many dreamy hours during visits.
