Publisher's Summary

High Ambo, in England, is the setting. It is winter, and Caroline West - a very human, placid, and unexcitable person - has gone there to escape her late husband's relatives. Like so many good-hearted people, she is immediately put upon. Caroline's sister Iris comes first, full of impulse and determination to be a reporter - an ambition abruptly deflected by a handsome young schoolmaster - an authority on birds. Then comes Robert, with his sweet, ingenuous fiancée Polly, and thus making the three-ring circus of a genuine Cadell household. A great number of little boys with big ears and caps are supporting players - English private school variety.

Altogether, this audiobook is in the happiest tradition of the English social comedy, and those who want to find as much life and laughter as possible will enjoy listening to it.

    love to read and love audio books!Favorite authors: Marcia Willett,Nevil Shute,Mary Stewart,and Jacqueline Winspear. I could go on and on but wont bore you! I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.

    "Terrible Narrator"

    Normally I am a big fan of Elizabeth Cadell but this story was dumb and the narrator
    (the grand daughter of the author) was awful...the story was almost incoherent ...I am used to the sometimes zany characters of Cadell but this was too much.
    Maybe it was just meant to be read not listened to! I also purchased "The Lark Shall Sing "; with a different narrator so I hope will be a better listening experience .

    "Delightful!"
    Would you listen to Iris in Winter again? Why?

    I loved this narration by Cadell's great-granddaughter! What a treat!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Iris in Winter?

    The story is delightful, but knowing the narrator was a great-granddaughter of the author! That was just wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss this story OR the wonderful narration!
