    I really want to buy more books but too many US ones I love UK narrators. Can you get some more Eleanor Bron, Gwen Watford, Jenny Agutter?

    "Over the gate"

    This charming and entertaining tale is so heartwarming. In the lovely tones of a clear English accent, the narrator takes us to the heart of English life in a village and all the characters are there with glimpses into their histories. Wonderful. I am buying the whole set of these books.

    Story
    "Narrator sublime!"

    Gwen Watford is THE voice of Miss Read. No other narrator can match her. Liquid honey voice oozing sympathetic understanding of human frailty in the tale of the daily toil of a dedicated teacher, observing humanity with her gentle, wry humour perfectly paced and pitched for maximum enjoyment. Wonderful!
