Jan Marsh

Author Jan Marshabout this book: This is the final part in a trilogy that has kept me busy for the last three years. The setting is Foxwood, a Georgian house on the border between England and Wales, a co living community set up byMaggie Perkins who inherited the house, run down and unloved. With foresight and commitment she set up an intentional community there which has grown and developed so that the residents- a motley crew- have made the place their home and given one another support through some of the trials of their lives.

Not that it's been plain sailing by any means. There have been clashes and conflicts, mistakes and misjudgements. But then, they are only human after all! Now add to the mix a very different type of housemate with a colourful past and see what effect that produces on the community!

I have been interested in the growth of co- living and can see that as we live longer, we need the support of others in our lives, on a daily basis. Community can be an antidote to feelings of loneliness and isolation and I hope that this trilogy shows some of the benefits of living' together and separately'. But the trilogy isn't polemic; I hope it's full of gentle humour and an insight into what it is to be human.
