Summary

The Yorkshire dales have never seemed more beautiful for James - now he has a lovely wife by his side, a partner's plate on the gate and the usual menagerie of farm animals, pets, and owners demanding his constant attention and teaching him a few lessons along the way.

All of the old Darrowby friends are on top form - Siegfried thrashes round the practice, Tristan occasionally buckles down for finals, and James is signed up for a local cricket team.

Really - What's not to like. It's James Herriot

These wonderful books remain as brilliant as ever. Beautifully read by Christopher TImothy. Just wish they were longer.

Lovely and funny.

The reader is good and very clear with excellent light and shade in his voice. The book is amusing and very descriptive as are all the Herriot books. A good listen.

Vets in Harness

Despite being written in 1974 it feels modern and relevant and with the bonus of being read by the brilliant Christopher Timothy - this is a must listen for a rainy Sunday afternoon!

Abridged...

Abridged versions suck. Wish all Herriot's books were available unabridged. Christopher Timothy's reading is awesome.
