There is something about the spare writing, the psychology of the main character and the compassionate exploration of what might be considered British aristocratic dysfunction that grabs me every time. The reading performance is outstanding. I have listened to this multiple times and am fed and full of appreciation each time.

Who was your favorite character and why?
Lee Morris is my favourite character - he is strong, sturdy and reliable and take things as he finds them.
What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?
I love Tony Britton's voice. It has a lovely mellow quality to it. Could listen to him for hours.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes very much. The story was interesting. Great characters. I love a story where a building has to be saved or a business rescued.
Any additional comments?
Lee's sons added a whole new dimension. Having to factor in the care of children into this story was well thought out. Especially their living accommodation and entertainment.<br/><br/>One of my favourite Dick Francis' books.

Another Dick Francis favourite of mine. In contrast to the warring Stratton family, Lee Morris' dysfunctional marriage is a picnic. He faces the turmoil of the Strattons and their racecourse with dispassionate equanimity and wisdom, with numerous small sons in tow, bringing sanity and reason to the chaos.
His self-built house with the hypocaust is an absolute delight, as is his life on the road with his boys in the caravan.
As old family secrets are revealed, tragedy ensues, and young lives are moulded under the guidance of a father the envy of any young boy.
A great read.
