Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the years Tyrrell spent in the seclusion of Richmond. After the strain and the constant demands of London, here at last was utter and overwhelming peace. Here he could walk for hours on his own, fill his pipe and read undisturbed, listen to the wind in the tops of the trees, or gaze at the stars in the silence of the night, thankful to have escaped from the frenzy of the city.
