Publisher's Summary

The second volume of memoirs from the author who inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small.
Now settled into the sleepy Yorkshire village of Darrowby and married to Helen the farmer's daughter, James Herriot thinks he's finally got himself sorted. But life as a vet in the 1930s was never going to be easy. Quite aside from his unpredictable colleagues, brothers Siegfried and Tristan Farnon, he must contend with new-fangled medical techniques, delivering calves after far too much homemade wine, and a grudge-holding dog called Magnus who never forgets. And then, with Britain on the verge of war, James faces a decision that could separate him from Darrowby - and Helen - forever....
Since they were first published, James Herriot's memoirs have sold millions of copies and entranced generations of animal lovers. Charming, funny and touching, All Things Bright and Beautiful is a heartwarming story of determination, love and companionship from one of Britain's best-loved authors.

Absolutely delightful

A delight to listen to especially as the narrator is the same person who played James Herriot in the BBC television series.
