I think this was the least of all the James Herriot books, but was still enjoyable in its own right. There was no doubt he knew how to tell a story in a wonderfully engaging manner.
I agree with many others who say that out of the series, this is the weakest, but still an enjoyable read for big fans, like myself.
After reading this, I feel as if I know James Herriot personally. Very charming.
Good in its own right, but my least favorite of the series. James returns after the war, but it doesn't have the same feel as the earlier stuff. Guess you can never go back...
