Publisher's Summary

From the author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin; a heart-warming collection of stories inspired by life in an English village. Casting his mind back to the village where he grew up, Louis de Bernières brings us a forgotten England: where a lady might dress in plus fours, a retired general might give up wearing clothes and a spiritualist might live with her sister and the ghost of her husband. Here we find the atmosphere of those times as it was in the countryside, and the people whose lives are worth celebrating.

If you like Correlli...

Superbly written and very entertaining from start to finish.The depth and complexity of both the characters and the story are fantastic. I was truly sorry when I had finished.

A beautiful collection of tales from a lost world

Unashamedly nostalgic tales of an England no longer here. Louis de Bernieres has his critics but he writes with a delightful lyricism which still complements some of his later works that are structurally more simple than his earlier works.
