Yes. Wonderful characters and lots of fun to listen to.
The eccentric characters that McCall Smith creates.
All of the scenes with Berthea and her brother, Terrance.
Tinker, Tailor, Sailor...Dog.
Alexander McCall Smith is such a prolific writer that it might be feared that some of his series would suffer. No worries! The wonderfully eccentric characters and delightful details of their quirky lives remain alive and well in all of his many books!
The late Lynn Redgrave did a masterful job of presenting the many characters in this book.
Alfrida is a very interesting character and a bit of a departure for Rosamunde Pilcher's usual heroines. She is an older woman who proves that life is full of possibilities for those who continue to seek them out (no matter their age)!
The scene with Alfrida and Oscar sitting by the fire at the little cottage they will live in for the rest of their lives.
It would have been so much better if Ms. Redgrave had read an UNABRIDGED version of this book. One of Rosamonde Pilcher's best qualities as a writer is that she takes her time in telling the story. She also offers rich, detailed descriptions of settings that are often (sadly) lost in an abridged version of her work.
