Wendy's Book Wendy Fletcher with her first print copy of The Railway Carriage Child

About two years ago I joined the local U3A Writing group as its third member. At my first meeting in Whittlesey’s Not Just Cafe, I was able to read a chapter from Wendy Fletcher’s autobiography. It was unfinished and hadn’t a title but it was for me a work of exceptional quality. Today the first-ever print copy was delivered to Wendy she brought it to the Writing Group (Whittlesey Wordsmiths) meeting opened the envelope and together with Wendy, we had the first sight of it.

This is the foreword

Against a backdrop of the Cambridgeshire fens, lies the

small market town of Whittlesey. Here are many features

of historical and architectural interest, including two

medieval churches, a 17th century Butter Cross and rare

examples of 18th century mud boundary walls.

Less well known, but still quite remarkable, are…

      1. Cathy, I am really enjoying this book, and I’ve asked Wendy if it will be okay to use it in a post, sort of in the format of the ones from “Gracie’s Summer Reading List.” I was thrilled, and my chickens were overjoyed, to see that chickens appeared on Page 2 of the book! In their opinion, that should make it a “best seller,” and who am I to disagree?!? Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

      1. Thanks so much for the link. I’ve ordered this and it should’ve here by October 10. The cost with postage was just a little over $20.00 U.S. which I think is very reasonable. Looking forward to reading this. Thanks again!

      2. My copy arrived this week, and I spent several delightful hours reading this yesterday. It’s the kind of book that is hard to put down, but you know you have to put it down because you want it to last as long as possible. It is really that good.

          1. Yes, absolutely! I also added a comment to her post and asked to feature it on MyLifeWithGracie sort of the way I did with “Gracie’s Summer Reading List.”

            There is a famous restaurant called The Virginia Diner near where I live now. The restaurant was started in an old railway car by the grandfather of someone I went through school with. It is quite famous in our area, so there may be some local interest created here as well.

            We as indie authors must stick together!

        1. I am really glad you are enjoying it.
          At my first writing group meeting I was able to read a chapter from the book. That was in 2017 I loved what I had read and thought it was a work of outstanding quality. It has been a priveledge to proof read it and write a foreword. Let’s hope the best seller list beckons.
          Our writing group has some very talented writers amongst the members Cathy is certainly one of them as is Wendy, I am lucky to have such good company to raise my game.
