The story focuses on Blake’s life when he moved to the small rural village of Felpham in Sussex, where he spent three hard-working years until the dramatic events which led him to court: in 1803 he was charged with sedition, at Chichester, for being too vocal in his response to a soldier he found trespassing in his garden.

Half a century later, Alexander Gilchrist arrives, intent on discovering all that he can about the ‘mad poet’s’ time there in order to compile a biography. Beginning his he starts questioning people about their memories of their now departed neighbor. But he soon encounters hostility when the court trial is mentioned – just what do the locals have to hide?

Peopled with a cast of colorful characters and set amid the tranquil beauty of the south coast of England, Gates of Paradise is Beryl Kingston’s most exceptional and powerful novel to date.
