Summary

As the new school year begins, Jack Sheffield prepares for an even more eventful year than usual. A new teacher is appointed, and before long tongues start to wag.

Meanwhile, five-year-old Madona Fazackerly makes her mark in an unexpected way, life changes dramatically for Ruby the caretaker, and, in the village Coffee Shop, Dorothy Humpleby plans a dirty weekend.

It’s 1983 - the era of the new CD player, Microsoft Word, the McDonalds McNugget, Cabbage Patch dolls, the threat of a miners’ strike and a final farewell to the halfpenny piece. Jack has to manage a year of triumph and tragedy….

wrong narrator

I really did not like the narrator, I'm sure for another book he would have been good but he spoilt this one...no hint of a Yorkshire accent and if he had narrated the first book I listened to by Jack Sheffield then I wouldn't have listened to anymore

Fabulous reminder

This is a well written gentle story that allows you to escape in to its warm enfolds. I loved the references to the 80's reminded me of my growing up. Great narration easy to listen to.
