B 6 The Accidental Shopkeeper

B 6 The Accidental Shopkeeper
An amusing amble through the life of Patrick Limming. (A long standing Club Lotus member). From boyhood adventures to the realities of 21st century adulthood.
His story will chime with readers born in the fifties bringing back as it does memories of a different world which his vivid description of small town Lincolnshire brings to life. His recounting of his early years and his father’s first foray into shop keeping was particularly amusing and heartfelt.
Whilst the book traces Patrick’s progress through the various stages of his life and the life of the family shop with its ups and downs, evolving slowly and at times reluctantly to the changing times it also reflects the story of rural market towns and their decline throughout the country. This may sound sobering and boring but the lightness of touch and humour with which it is written makes it an easy read.
Throughout it all there is a common Lotus theme: Patrick has loved them from early adolescence until today. Early dreams turn into the reality of ownership, with all its pain and pleasure - from the Elan, through Esprit to the Elise. Tempted by Italian models he stayed faithful and enjoyed a long and happy relationship with Lotus. (Oh and his wife Alice).
