Publisher's Summary

First broadcast on Woman's Hour, Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge star in this popular BBC Radio 4 comedy Ladies of Letters. This collection features all 11 series.
When Irene Spencer meets Vera Small at her daughter Lesley's wedding reception, they embark upon a correspondence that is quite unlike any other in the history of letter writing. Both Irene and Vera are happily widowed and endowed with errant offspring. They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen pals. Feisty, naughty and endlessly funny, Ladies of Letters provides a hilarious insight into suburban friendships and modern family life as they really are!

NOT the complete radio collection

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The title misrepresents the content. It does not include season 2 and since I bought it mainly to get season 2 I am disappointed.

I was so pleased when this appeared on Audible. I was extremely disappointed to discover that Ladies of More Letters is not included. Why not? Please say you'll add it in soon and you'll include an index system it's easier to find the individual stories. Such an excellent series and such a pity it's not complete.
