In audiobook one the twins are simply not having it. St Clare's is beneath them, and they're determined to cause a stir. But life at St Clare's is not as easy as they thought. They have several surprises and arguments before they admit their troubles are of their own making and settle down to make friends. Expect mischief at St Clare's!

I like Isabel and Pat - the cheeky young madams!
I really enjoy this story - even though I'm a boy. I don't know if there are any more male fans out there.

Well known by the popular TV series starring David Jason and Catherine Zeta-Jones, The Darling Buds of May is the quintessential feel-good country romp.
