Summary

In the little hamlet of Lark Rise times are changing and Laura is growing up. Although she must attend the nearby village school, she would far rather read and make up stories in her head. 

Real-life excitement comes, however, when she and her beloved younger brother Edmund are allowed to walk on their own to the grand market town of Candleford to stay with their relatives one summer. There, Laura discovers the joys of the shops, the ways of boy-talk with her cousins and the secret world of 'Bookworms Ltd' with her Uncle Tom, before an offer arrives that will determine her future.

Karen Cass is an excellent narrator and very easy to listen. I mostly enjoyed this audiobook. What I did it like was that ....

I enjoyed this audiobook mostly but couldn’t help comparing it to the Larkrise to Candleford series that was done for TV. THAT was excellent and the characters came to life and are very memorable. The audiobook mostly has the narrator speaking and telling the stories—not the characters acting them out. It was a series of pleasant stories with no plot. I was very disappointed in this. It was also very short. They should have included all three audiobooks for that price.
