Wonderful collection of tales that have been collected together with "extra bits" for us all to enjoy. I'm so glad the characters live on in this jolly book! I have loved reading of the villagers exploits over the years in Country Living. This book will be treasured!
A great read. Aly brings her characters to life. You feel as if you too know some of them! I recommend this book as a great stocking filler for lovers of English village life, especially if you are not actually part of a village community.
I used to follow Aly Wilks in Country Living Magazine. I loved it. Not sure its completely true - I don't think the neighbours would still be talking to her but I just love it and was very sad when the stories ended in the magazine. If the characters are real in this village I want to live there.
Aly writes with such fun and wit and it is a delight to read this book. Refreshingly humorous and uplifting, this book will make you chuckle from beginning to end, as well as making you want to move to the countryside immediately. Love it!,,
