I came across this book in the early seventies and have read it about every second year since then. Hearing it now as an audio book brings a fresh perspective and new insights. I was doubtful about Jonathan Oliver's Devon accent at first but soon got carried away in the majestic sweep of the tale and a world I never seem to tire of. RF Delderfield is my favourite author. I admit it.

Why only the one book, Audible? Is the sequel soon to follow?
