Cumbrian author trades New York for St Bees

A vicar's wife who moved with her husband from New York to the Cumbrian seaside village of St Bees has drawn on the transition in her latest book.

Katharine Swartz's 'The Vicar's Wife' is a fictional account of a vicar's wife moving to a Cumbrian village and struggling to fit in.

Katharine is keen to stress while their are some parallels between her and the main character Jane she, her husband Cliff and their five children are very happy in St Bees.

"I did struggle a bit when we first moved here - mainly with the weather.

"But the people here are lovely, our children have a freedom they could

never have in New York and the scenery is stunning.

"This is a work of fiction but I hope people like the way St Bees is

portrayed. Though in the book it is called Goswell.

– Katharine Swartz
