Another Peter May Classic
Peter Forbes is a most engaging narrator and listening to him detail the characters I was totally sucked in.
Classic Peter May, I have all his books and listening to them causes me to take the dog on the longer walk and I drive the long road home. This story had me laughing out loud standing on a train platform, it also had me welling up in places.
A simple everyday story that can be related to by most, beautifully written. A masterpiece as we have come to expect from Peter. The narrator Peter Forbes brings all to life with the warmth of a bed time story.
Superb literature that I highly recommend.
I have listened to all Peters audio books. This ranks very highly.
