Funny, heartwarming and gripping...., 23 July 2011
My family had tea very late tonight as I couldn't bring myself to put the book down and start cooking.
The author has divided the chapters by student's names and each one tells a delightful story. Personalities and backgrounds at the school intertwine with the narrative of the author and his wife settling in to life in the Dales, which includes everything from letting houses, buying houses, diy, neighbors and having a baby. I loved it- will be a great Christmas gift for several people on my list.
