Publisher's Summary

The day that Hilary and David have been waiting for has finally arrived and as the church bells ring out for the arrival of the bride, everyone's fingers are crossed for the day to go without a hitch. The festivities set the tone for the year ahead and there's more love in the air in Burracombe so planning continues for both Dottie and Joe's and Frances and James's nuptials. There's nothing like a wedding to bring the village together. Times are changing in Burracombe and as young and old embark on new adventures it's time to say goodbye. But with friends like these, a goodbye is rarely for ever, so instead we'll say a very fond farewell.

Disappointing Listen.

Having listened to all of the Burracombe Books prior to this one.. I can honestly say I have loved & enjoyed them all & could not wait to listen to the next edition. The narrator for these books having been Anne Dover.. Sadly for whatever the reason being, the Narrator for Farewell to Burracombe was changed to Janine Birkett.. I had mentally over the years built up pictures of the characters & could recognise their voices through Anne's narration. But with Janine's narration I had to start over again & personally I did not like the characteration's she chose.. In particular Felix! If there are any more Burracombe books in the future, unless Anne Dover does the narration I will sadly have to give the books a miss!! Please, please, if it is at all possible to do so bring back Anne Dover to Burracombe!!!

Disappointing finale

Having listened and enjoyed all the Burracombe books this was spoilt by the reader. Her voice grated and for me spoilt my listening. I have really enjoyed all the books, life in a village with all the characters and plot lines but this last one for me was a bit repetitive.

Farewell to Burracombe

Enjoyable to the end, just a little bit disappointed that Anne Dover was not the narrator as she previously read all the other Burracombe Book

Ruined by awful narration

I am struggling to listen to this! Like another listener, I had built up pictures of all the characters from Anne Dover’s narrations. This narrator has reduced them all to caricatures like very cruel cartoon figures!! Having looked forward to this book’s publication I really doubt that I will ever finish it as the portrayal makes me so cross!! Any chance of a rival recording of it by Anne Dover? I am relieved to see that the new prequel ‘A Child in Burracombe’ is once more read by Anne Dover and I shall be using a credit on that.
