James Herriot's seventh volume of unforgettable memoirs, read by Christopher Timothy.
The war is over, the RAF uniform has been handed in and James Herriot goes back where he ought to be - at work in the dales around Darrowby. Much has changed, but the blunt-spoken Yorkshire folk and the host of four-legged patients are still the same. So is their vet, who doesn't yet know that literary success is just around the corner....
Herriot books are so easy to listen to with all the anecdotes. His books are well read and are amusing in parts and a little sad in others. Now in the 21 century it is a story of a way of life that is over, the slow pace of pre-war and post war English life. Lovely.
