Publisher's Summary

James Herriot has now become firmly established and accepted as one of Darrowby's veterinarians. He's also married, and lives with his wife Helen on the top floor of Skeldale House. His former boss, now partner, Siegfried, lives downstairs with Siegfried's brother Tristan.

Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

©1973 by James Herriot; (P)1996 by Audio Renaissance

    "Thoroughly enjoyed"

    The second book in the series. Though not quite as good as the first (5-stars) I thoroughly enjoyed it. The anecdotes are witty and well written. I would recommend this book to all who like animals.

    Story
    "Musical interludes"

    I didn't like the music that would come in the middle of a story (despite the chapter change) and the reader would have to talk over the music before it faded out.

    I also wish the chapters of the book matched the Audible chapters. It's confusing.

    These two complaints are true of the 3 major Herriot books.

    Love Christopher Timothy. Very delightful way of reading the stories and doing the accents and tones of voice.

    "Great story, fantastic narration!"

    The narrator really captures the essence of this story, a heartwarming tale of life as a vet in the north of England in the 1930s.

    "if you've never read James Herriot, "

    I forgot how beautifully written these books are, not having read them in over 20 years. If you haven't read them, there is something missing from your life.
    Wonderfully interpreted by Christopher Timothy.
