Summary

A few months of married bliss, a lovers' nest in Darrowby and the wonders of home cooking are rudely interrupted for James Herriot by the Second World War.

James Herriot's fifth volume of memoirs relocates him to a training camp somewhere in England. And in between square pounding and digging for victory, he dreams of the people and livestock he left behind him.

Calming Yorkshire at its best

I love James Herriot books- gentle, kind, lovely stories about the Yorkshire Dales and the animals (and owners) he cares for. If you like animals this book is for you.

Loved them then, love them now

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