Publisher's Summary

Marriage to her publisher, Arthur Abbott, has done nothing to stop Barbara Buncle from involving herself in the lives of her neighbours.
After leaving Silverstream and moving to London, Barbara and Arthur are enjoying their newly wedded bliss, but not the city life. The only solution to their problem? Returning to the country. Silverstream is out of the question, but Barbara eventually finds the perfect candidate in the town of Wandlebury.
After falling in love with the town, and the run-down Archway House, the Abbotts move in and make it their home. Barbara doesn’t intend to get mixed up with those around her, again, but can’t help falling into those scrapes, often with humorous consequences!

A bad sequel

I must admit I haven't got through more than 1/4 of this- but I have to say it's a crashing disappointment as a sequel to 'Miss Buncle's Book'

It lacks 'fun' and lightness of touch and all charm. The 'nice' Miss Buncle has turned, beyond all recognition into a woman who effectively threatens to leave her husband unless he moves to a new location of her own choosing. She then, with monstrous improbability, gets to read someone else's will...

It was at this point that I felt that wherever the plot was going to go it was going to be a great waste of time and I gave up.

disappointing

What was most disappointing about D. E. Stevenson’s story?

after enjoying miss buncle's book, the first in a trilogy. where she wrote a story about the people where she lived, changing their names, which became a best seller this was a run of the mill story of married life in the 1930's. it was very predictable, didn't have the humour of the first book and some plot lines were just silly. the ending was alright.needless to say I won't be buying the last book in the trilogy.


Have you listened to any of Patricia Gallimore’s other performances? How does this one compare?

as far as I remember only the miss buncle's book. she performed both books well bringing the characters to life.


If this book were a film would you go see it?

the first book yes, but not this one.


Any additional comments?

read Miss buncle's book as a stand alone book don't bother with this one.
