Lou Clark knows a lot of things. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop, and she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live, and now everything feels small and joyless. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

Loved this book, one of the best I've heard on Audible. It was sad, funny, heartwarming and the narration was excellent throughout. Can't wait to read the next one.

In 2007, after 20 years of living in London, Kate Humble and her husband, Ludo, decided it was time to leave city life behind them. Three years later, now the owner of a Welsh smallholding, Kate hears that a nearby farm is to be broken up and sold off. Another farm lost; another opportunity for a young farmless farmer gone. Desperate to stop the sale, Kate contacts the council with an alternative plan - to keep the farm working and to run a rural skills and animal husbandry school alongside it. Against all odds, she succeeds.

One of the best books I've heard! If you love dogs, this is not to be missed. It's uplifting, emotional, very moving and you'll never look at dogs in quite the same way again!

Lorna is a talented gardener, and Philly is a plantswoman. Together they work in the grounds of a beautiful manor house in the Cotswolds. They enjoy their jobs and are surrounded by family and friends. But for them both, the door to true love remains resolutely closed. So when Lorna is introduced to Jack at a dinner party and Lucien catches Philly's eye at the local farmers market, it seems that dreams really can come true, and happy endings lie just around the corner.... But do they?

I've enjoyed several books by Katie Fforde in the past but this one is definitely not up to the authors usual standard. A boring plot, hesitant narration with no dramatic characterization.

Romantic novel of the year 2010. When the abandoned strays from a local dogs' home are matched with brand new owners, it turns out it might not be just the dogs who need rescuing. Rachel's aunt has left her a house, a border collie and, despite Rachel knowing nothing about dogs, a crowded kennel. But since her life has collapsed, she's not sure she can deal with any more lost souls.

A heart warming story which will definitely appeal to the dog lovers among us. Great characters throughout which were brought to life by a very skillful narrator. I didn't want it to end.
