Publisher's Summary

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.

Oh my! It's so romantic!

The bird watching schoolmaster and Iris... in winter. A beautiful English country story set in post-war England, published in 1949. Interesting in that it gives insights into the rationing system that was still in use.
Beautiful scenery, fun characters, delightful dialogue.
A special mention must be made of the new narrator. In short - she's wonderful. I can't fault her and am crossing my fingers that she works on more Elizabeth Cadell books. Her calm, clear voice is just right for these very special books! Kudos to her for the fantastic job she did with Iris in Winter.

Would you listen to Iris in Winter again? Why?

I loved this narration by Cadell's great-granddaughter! What a treat!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Iris in Winter?

The story is delightful, but knowing the narrator was a great-granddaughter of the author! That was just wonderful.

Any additional comments?

Don't miss this story OR the wonderful narration!
