Alice and the Hermit – the book

My book  ‘Alice and the Hermit’ to accompany the Arts Council England funded project, ‘Hermit- a life on the Margins’. It tells the story of the coastguard’s daughter, Alice, befriending the old hermit who lives in a cave in the woods near her home. The Hermit was a real man called John Hancox but the girl is imagined. The coastguard’s cottages that once stood on the edge of the cliff fell into sea a long time ago but you can still see the remains of the old brick chimney.
