A convincing sounding account of life on a Dorset farm and the wife who decides to take a break and leave them to get on without her. Although I did get to the end, I found the writing style very formal for this kind of story. 'Had not' instead of 'hadn't' and 'would not' instead of 'wouldn't' etc.It grated on the ear. The odd swearword thrown in to try and make it sound 'modern' was spoken with such beautiful diction by the narrator that it was laughable. This narrator would be fantastic reading a Jane Austen novel but not one about life down on the farm.
I listened to the whole thing but it was a disappointment after having listened to a couple of really good talking books. The love story was real but silly and only made the story depressing to listen to as she had a taste of freedom to go back to her life and live out her boring life. This book was a waste of time and was very forgettable. The narrator was annoying as she had a dry mouth and puacked a lot. Annoying as the book.
