    I thoroughly enjoyed this book The main reason is that Tessa is a brilliant writer and is based on actual facts This book is crying out for a tv adaptation and hopefully Tessa would do the screenplay I recommend this book to friends and colleagues alike The description of people is excellent and the description of Cornwall in all weathers is truly amazing For any Americans reading this review, please read this book and you will see that not all Brits are Brideshead Revisted types.

    Up with the Larks I laughed, I cried, I hated to put it down. We can read all the back to simplicity blogs on ZenHabits, on Minimalist, on TheSimpleLife, etc., but what does it feel like to live it What are the trade offs, what is the reward I found this a restorative story, a renewal book, and yes, a frolic book The hard parts are given their hulking due, but the rewards are detailed people, flowers, skies, seas, and the favor at the bottom of the box is the mindfulness that brings happiness, the relationships that feed the soul, nature s healing they are all painted in delightful detail There is a sparkle to Hainsworth s style that makes me want to read her other books on life in Cornwall, and the choice to go from Body Shop International Exec to rural postie is huge and very affirming Highly recommended for anyone who has ever thought about going to a simpler life

    This made me giggle at times Having only lived in West Cornwall for 2 years, I could really relate to this book I m feeling very aware of my Farrow and Ball painted walls at the moment I wonder if my postie knows what colours I ve used, lol.

    Up with the Larks is the first book by Tessa Hainsworth about her transfer from the rat race as a marketing manager at a well known cosmetic company to a local postie in a Cornish village This is all based on fact and has obviously been worked with the produce something which is part autobiography, part travel book and part novel which works extremely well.I look forward to the next part of the tale in her follow up novel, and long may they continue with the warmth and humour that Tessa has injected into the whole book Despite the days she has to face the biting cold wind or the icy rain

    What a great read Tessa Hainsworth and her family decide to move to Cornwall from London after leaving her stressful job All does not go to plan with a business they thought they could start up so Tessa gets a job as a postie Each chapter begins under the heading of the month of the year starting in November She gives us an account of her first year there where we meet her workmates and the people she delivers the mail to There are two books in the series which I am eager to read And yes this would make a brilliant TV series

    A lovely read and as a born and bred Devonian I could understand the walls Tessa came up against It was interesting to read from an incomers point of view Beautiful descriptions of the flora and fauna of Cornwall
