Publisher's Summary

When young Charles Benson arrives in Toftham, a sleepy Norfolk market town, on a miserable Sunday afternoon in January 1952, he has only the vaguest idea what Fate has in store for him. It is at the hands of the editor of the Toftham and Wettleford Journal, Mr Juby, that Charles is introduced to local reporting and Norfolk ways.
Charles finds himself steering a perilous course through a minefield of WI meetings, funerals, fêtes, local dramatics, council shenanigans and point-to-points, floundering his way through a succession of debacles on his way to becoming a real journalist…and a real man of Norfolk.

A Gem! I enjoyed this book so much!

This is one of the best books I've listened to. Too bad there aren't similar books by this author. It's a great story of a young man learning to be a reporter in a small town. He and his boss/mentor have a charming relationship. The book is pretty light except for one part and the narrator produces just the right amount of humor in his tone.

David Thorpe has become one of my very favorite narrators and I am purchasing everything by him that is remotely the type of book I like.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes an engaging story, well constructed and well performed. I look forward to listening to this one again in a year or two.
