A Fitting Finish To A Lovely Trilogy

Any additional comments?

Having now listened to all three books in this series, I can now sit back and have a little contented sigh to myself. I have really enjoyed this trilogy and feel all the T's have been crossed and I's have been dotted. Jonathan Oliver's narration has been consistent and a joy to lisen to.
It's not a deep and meaningful series by any stretch, but if you're looking for a relatively gentle listen, then I would recomend this series.

Over the past week I've spent many happy hours listening to the trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed them. They were very well read and my first experience of audio books has been a very positive one.

The final book in the trilogy brought everything to a close quietly and well.

Just lovely

I've always loved Delderfield's books, beautiful epics of life as it is. Fantastic narrator too, great accents and not overly dramatic, just like the book. I dare say that I'm sick of hearing "I dare say" though
