Product Description

Product Description

Bilbury Grange is the second in Vernon Coleman's series of Bilbury books. The place is the English county of Devon. The time is the 1970s. A young doctor, just married and in a new home (a vast and rambling country house in desperate need of repairs and renovation), has taken over a small village practice when suddenly the authorities decide that the village isn't big enough to have its own doctor. The villagers decide otherwise. Bilbury is the village everyone dreams of living in. It's the village where people speak to strangers and where doors are left unlocked. Bilbury Grange is the story of village life in the 1970s and it centres on the young doctor and his lovely wife. But its also about the people who live there and it is a story of great happiness and joy, some tragedy and many dramas.
`For sheer relaxing pleasure here's another witty tale from the doctor whose prolific writings are so well known.' BBC Bookshelf
`A wonderful book for relaxing and unwinding. Makes you want to up roots and move to the rural heartland.' Lincolnshire Echo
`A cornucopia of colourful characters help to weave a rich tapestry of village life subtly tempered with gentle humour...the mixture of rural beauty, human nature and the odd whisper of nostalgia combine to make this book a real delight.' Western Gazette
`The tales he tells are truly uplifting and thought provoking. They are a breath of fresh air in a troubled world and are also very amusing.' Peoples Friend
`I have just finished reading Bilbury Grange. I found the book to be brilliant. I felt as though I was part of the community.' Mr C, Cleethorpes

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific read. 26 Mar 2010
By David
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This series of books about the fictional Devon village is a joy to read. I have read the whole series to date and hope Vernon Coleman is to write more. As a wannabe Devon village inhabitant myself but one stuck in suburbia, it is pure escapism and good humour. I thoroughly recommend the books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as book one
Second book (in a series?) More of the same as first book but not as good. The "rescue" of the sheep from a slaughter house seemed contrived/sentimental.
