Join Joseph Pearce on a journey into the real Shire—a voyage into the mysterious presence of an England which is more real than the one you are accustomed to seeing, the one which seems to be in terminal decline. The England Pearce wants us to know is an enchanted and unchanging place, full of ghosts who are as alive as the saints. It is an England that is rural, sacramental, liturgical, local, beautiful . . . a place “charged with the grandeur of God”.
In this wonder-filled journey, Joseph Pearce shows us the true England through the splendor of the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. He shows us an England that can never die, not because it lingers like a fading coal in the memory of mortal men, but because it exists as a beautiful flower in the Gardens of Eternity.

A Delightful Visit
LOVED this book! Reading it is like actually being on a pilgrimage with the erudite Joseph Pearce. You will learn a great deal along the way very pleasantly! It really is as wonderful as an actual, physical visit the actual sites in England. Once again, Pearce triumphs. Thank you Joseph Pearce for another fine work in your impressive canon .
A Very Good Book, Elegiac but Not Sad
This book is a treat to read. Pearce dearly loves his native England, and he draws the reader into England;s rich, long-persecuted but thus long-enduring Catholic heritage. Each chapter is short, making this good bedside reading.
