Veterinarian James Herriot recalls life in England during World War II, when the great forces of the modern world came even to his sleepy Yorkshire hamlet Only a couple of years after settling into his new home in northern England, James Herriot is called to war. In this series of poignant and humorous episodes, the great veterinarian shares his experiences training with the Royal Air Force, pining for a pregnant wife, and checking in on the people back home who made his practice so fascinating. As the young men of Yorkshire are sent into battle and farmers consider the broader world theyre a part of, Herriot reflects on the liveshuman and animal alikethat make his home worth fighting for.

#RedRoseSeptember
Not every “wonder” book from my shelves tells of a #WonderfulLife but there is certainly plenty of wonderful titles to be found there. Many of these are still unread but the tagged book & The Wonderful Wizard of Oz & Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland are wonderful childhood favorites.📚💚

A relaxing audio book listen - read the books when I was in school and remember watching the BBC series with my dad so this was a definite comfort read/listen for me.

My #commonwealthauthors . Most of them are English, so I'm definitely in need of more shelf diversity...
