Publisher's Summary

The scene of this entertaining story is laid in a charming English village. The plot centres round Miss Barbara Buncle, a maiden lady who was obliged to write a book because - as she naively explained - her dividends were so poor. Unfortunately, Miss Buncle had no imagination, so she wrote about her friends - quite kindly and truthfully, of course, for she was a benevolent and veracious soul.
The reactions of her friends to Miss Buncle's book, however, were a little surprising, and the far-reaching and unexpected results of its publication caused quite a stir.

A very English book

A wonderful book - gentle, humourous, kind and old fashioned in the very best sense. It shows a picture of village life before the war, the alliances and petty rivalries and what happens when one of the villagers writes a book exposing their hidden secrets (good and bad). It's the sort of book to relax into, to listen to on a sunny summer afternoon with a glass of Pimms. It is as quintessentially English as cricket and home made scones. A lovely listen beautifully read.

So funny, I could not stop laughing so good.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Never read this if you have a chest cold, you will laugh so much you will have a coughing fit.

I have downloaded 2 more titles by this author - hope they are as good.
