Paul Craddock is still young when he is invalided out of the army after the Boer War and he discovers the neglected estate of Shallowford in a secluded corner of Devon. It seems remote from the march of progress. But as storm clouds gather over Europe, Paul learns that no part of England, however remote, can escape the challenge of the times.

Delighted me from go to woe
Delderfield a magical story teller
I am biased as this the third time on this book. I have read all Delderfield's books and have been eagerly awaiting them to come to Audible.
Professionally read adds enjoyment to a great story
A bit long for that but never less hard to put down.
I only hope there will be more Delderfield in the pipeline.
