High Ambo, in England, is the setting. It is winter, and Caroline West - a very human, placid, and unexcitable person - has gone there to escape her late husband's relatives. Like so many good-hearted people, she is immediately put upon. Caroline's sister Iris comes first, full of impulse and determination to be a reporter - an ambition abruptly deflected by a handsome young schoolmaster - an authority on birds. Then comes Robert, with his sweet, ingenuous fiancée Polly, and thus making the three-ring circus of a genuine Cadell household. A great number of little boys with big ears and caps are supporting players - English private school variety.
Altogether, this audiobook is in the happiest tradition of the English social comedy, and those who want to find as much life and laughter as possible will enjoy listening to it.

I loved this narration by Cadell's great-granddaughter! What a treat!
The story is delightful, but knowing the narrator was a great-granddaughter of the author! That was just wonderful.
Don't miss this story OR the wonderful narration!
