A collective biography of three of the most distinguished stylists writing in the English language, who lived and died in the small village of Bishopsbourne in Kent: Richard Hooker (1554-1600), the theologian whose major work, Of the Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity, provided the philosophical underpinning of the Elizabethan Anglican movement; the celebrated author Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) who wrote his last novels there and Jocelyn Brooke (1908-1966), the Proustian author of the 'Orchid' trilogy which shot him to fame in the late 1940s.
