Publisher's Summary

In the final book of the series that began with The Darling Buds of May, the fun-loving Pop Larkin finds himself confined to a bed following a mild heart attack - caused by a little too much of what he fancied. Ma battles with the doctors as she attempts to find an adequate cure, but it turns out that a seductive nurse is all he needs. Pa's spirits truly recover themselves when he is forced to defend his home from the ministry's railway plans. This concludes the tales of H. E. Bates' Larkin family - a winsome gallery of characters who live as many of us would like to live, 'if only we had the guts and nerve to flout the conventions'.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "A Little of What You Fancy"

    It's a shame I have now come to an end with the Pop Larkin series. This book was slightly heavier for a while with the heart attack, but nevertheless i did enjoy listening to it and was sad to come to an end.

    "Superb Cap to.a Brilliant Series"

    Brilliantly crafted series of stories about a family we all wish could be our friends for life. This final chapter is the Jewel in the Crown of Bates' masterpiece saga of true human love and simple pleasures..
