Original tales by remarkable writers. Hometown Tales is a series of books pairing exciting new voices with some of the most talented and important writers at work today. Some of the tales are fiction, and some are narrative nonfiction - they are all powerful, fascinating and moving and aim to celebrate regional diversity and explore the meaning of home. In this audiobook on Yorkshire, you'll find two unique tales: an intimate account of returning to her childhood home of Snaith by Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love, and from new voice Victoria Hennison, a deeply personal memoir of growing up in the village of Holme-on-Spalding Moor.
