    In this first volume of his memoirs, then-newly-qualified vet James Herriot arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, and he has no idea what to expect. How will he get on with his new boss? The local farmers? And what will the animals think? This program is filled with hilarious and touching tales of the unpredictable Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, and Herriot's first encounters with a beautiful girl named Helen.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this story to a friend especially a young adult, a glimpse at life in the 30's English country of Yorkshire.
    This is a wonderful story that takes you back to a simpler time. I laughed and cried as I listened, and felt so drawn into the story. James, Sigfried, and Tristan become so alive that you expect to see them at the Vet Hospital here in town. I love all the characters that live in their little town. This is a peaceful story to listen to during our hectic, intense, uber electronic age.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The beautiful descriptions of the country side and the eccentric characters that live there.


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Timothy – was your favorite?

    James Herriot, Vet surgeon


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    film already done but try," Bring a bucket of warm water, soap and a towel, I'm going in"...

    Dotsy Lamb, history professor and recently divorced empty nester, is ready for culinary delights and sun-drenched piazzas on her group tour of Italy - but murder wasn't part of the package. Snide Meg Bauer was loathed by everyone, but even an obnoxious tourist deserves justice after being stabbed to death with a souvenir knife. When a local gypsy is arrested, Dotsy believes he's an innocent scapegoat. Suspecting that the killer lurks among them, she discovers that within the twenty-odd mix of tourists and guides, there are a few dark secrets.

    Would you try another book from Maria Hudgins and/or Connie Terwilliger?

    no


    What could Maria Hudgins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    develope better characters, describe the food,senery,musuems, the cities better. Anything to enliven this pittiful book. I wonder if the author ever went to Italy. Seems not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    horrible accents-the Italian ones were so phoney, the Americans were whiney and nasal, made it hard to pay attention to the story, which was boring.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I never finished the book. Lost all interest even as they began to solve the murders.
