As he arrives in Romania after the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, William Blacker finds a medieval world he thought was lost forever. The charm of life in the Carpathian mountains and the Saxon villages is so irresistible that he decides to stay, and for many years, he lives according to the cycle of the seasons, ploughing with horses and scything the hay. Now this world is slowly disappearing, but the magic of this country, with its traditional way of life untouched by modernity, emanates from this remarkable book.
