I would recommend anyone who is an exile from South Devon to read all the Lilian Harry Burracombe series. They are so accurate and took me back to my childhood, hope there are more to come.

This is the introduction to the Burracombe quartet and introduces the characters in the village and where they live and how they react to newcomers.
The story is wonderful the characters and description of the village and its events coming to life. You really feel as if you live there.
I couldn't put this book down.
If you want to get lost in times gone by this is a great read but once you have, you willwant to buy the other three books as well as I have already done.

Young Stella Simmons has come to the Devonshire Village of Burracombe to be the new teacher. Quickly she finds herself being drawn into Village and it residents. Many of the residents are facing new challenges and a change of the old ways. But together they will face this new future together.
"The Bells of Burracombe" is a good book by author Lilian Harry, who I forgotten who was such a good writer. Ms. Harry gives the reader such rich and interesting characters. Any fan of war-time or post war-time books should check her other books.

I really enjoyed this audio book. I've listened to some books before where all the characters end up sounding the same and I switch off after a bit, but this reading, (actually it felt like a dramatisation, more like a play), was very engaging and painted the myriad characters with lots of country colour. As with all the best audio books, I could really 'see' what was going on. The reader's talent for characters was really shown off in this charming interpretation. I shall be exploring Lillian Harry's work further as a result. A really happy listen! More please, Ms Harry...

I'm a huge fan of the Burracombe series; I have all the books in paperback but am now passing these on to friends and replacing them with Kindle copies.My job is involving a lot of travel abroad at the moment and it's really good to have all of these books available to read - it's like settling down with an old friend which is a huge bonus when you've spent a week away from home in various hotels. I like that i can come back to them, no matter how many times I've read them, or how well I know the plot, and just enjoy the characters and their relationships. Incidentally, I've done the same with To Kill a Mockingbird, my Rosamund Pilcher collection and also the complete Harry Potter!

A nice read but very predictable and a little 'forced' at the end. The author seemed to struggle pulling all the pieces together, rather unnecessarily, to bring the book to a close. Character development was a little weak. Some sub-plots were really dragged out and others quickly glossed over. Will give next book in the series a try to see if the author is a little more comfortable with her story, the characters, and how to draw the next episode to a close.
