Help with the ironing.

I have read many of this author's books over the years and have always enjoyed them.

I have only recently discovered Audible and was pleased to find Gervase Phinn books available.

I listened to The Story of a Yorkshire Lad whilst attacking a pile of ironing and it was almost enjoyable---the ironing I mean! The book was great especially when read by the author.
