A worthy sequel to the first instalment. Emotional, uplifting, funny and nostalgic. Just truly wonderful.

Such vivid and wonderful characters. The BBC must turn this into a TV series, it would be a huge hit.

The reader brought such warmth to the narration of this story. Going to get straight into the next book in the series right away.
