As a lover of both history and the countryside, urbanite couch-potato Charlie Connelly decides to rectify this and sets out on foot along some famous routes, journeying alongside Bodica's chariot in Norfolk, reliving Bonnie Prince Charlie's flight to Skye, and taking the same tragic route as the starving famine walkers of Connemara. It's a tale that features broken toes, dead poets, a couple of ghosts, and rain. Lots and lots of rain.

This is set in Derbyshire where I live and as an allotment holder myself, I enjoyed this audio. The Characters were so different from each other from all different walks of life, so it was interesting how they all come together taking on allotment life. Good !

Secrets all Round

Great book to read, however quite a sad book too. The secrets of all the family members all blaming themselfs for what happen on the beach that day. Wriiten over various time lines so can be a bit confuseing at first. The deep inner thoughts of each family member is so well wrttien. Emila Fox her narration is amasing! Her voice makes you feel the story not just hear it.
