It's life as usual at Frogmorton Farm - which is to say that events have passed the merely eccentric and are now galloping headlong towards the completely bizarre. Once again Jenny struggles to stay afloat in the stormy seas of matrimony with her husband, Russell Checkland, together with an unlikely mix of Patagonian Attack Chickens, Jack the Sad Donkey and Mrs Crisp's mysterious boyfriend.

It’s Christmas, and Jenny Checkland is beset with problems. The vicar, who really should know better, has asked to borrow Marilyn the donkey for the nativity play, thereby unleashing chaos on the already chaos-laden Frogmorton Farm. Will Marilyn survive her bath? Will anyone survive Marilyn’s bath? Robbed of her role as the Virgin Mary, what revenge is the angel Gabriel plotting? Why is that sheep so fat? Will Charlie ever get to say his one line? Can Marilyn be prevented from eating the baby Jesus?

Getting a life isn't always easy. And hanging on to it is even harder.... Jodi Taylor brings all her comic writing skills to this heartwarming tale of self-discovery. Known as The Nothing Girl because of her severe stutter and chronically low self-confidence, Jenny Dove is only just prevented from ending it all by the sudden appearance of Thomas, a mystical golden horse only she can see. Under his guidance Jenny unexpectedly acquires a husband - the charming and chaotic Russell Checkland.

Well, this was different, most enjoyable but a bit slow in the middle but made up for it later. Very good listen but I feel I don’t know the characters so well yet. This could well be the intention, and if so well done. Now for the sequel:-)

I’ve loved each and every one of the time travel (ahem) books which I listen too, read by the amazing Zara Ramm but I do wish I had known that it was a duplicate of all the short stories I had already heard all bar the last one (which was also excellent) however at least I have the complete set so far. Long may you write about the brilliant St. Mary’s xxxx

Completes the story with a fairly satisfactory ending. A very easy listen unravelling the personalities of the characters from the first book ‘Rattle’ making you understand why they are who they are.

When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early 40s, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

This was an easy book to listen too. It flowed nicely, was easy to follow and the readers voice was perfect also. Looking forward to adding more to my library.
