    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.

    "Some of My All Time Favorites!!!"
    Overall

    I read all of James Herriot's books several times over during the 20+ years and have never tired of them or have they been far from my mind (as a cat, dog and horse owner). I watched the BBC program as well (which was excellent). The review "Comfort Listening" says it all. My vision is now impaired and I can't really read a book anymore, so the part about them being good for someone in ill health, etc. is very accurate. If you have read these books before, you will still be as enchanted as you were the first time---and if you haven't, it will be well worth your time and your book credits to give them a try. I'm so happy that I can download the 2nd one right now and keep going!

  • Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind

    Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and unceremoniously announces that the child is the bastard son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime church member and pillar of her small Southern community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal - and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.

    If you could sum up Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind in three words, what would they be?

    Comforting and addictive.


    What other book might you compare Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind to and why?

    I would compare the series to the Father Tim series by Jan Karon.


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    It was just fine. I've grown used to Cynthia Darlow because she's the narrator for all the other "Miss Julia" books on Audible.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to contact Audible and see when the other four books will be available. I can't imagine they would put on Number One and not add the rest to catch up:-)
