Dorothy Emily Stevenson (D. E. Stevenson), first cousin once removed to Robert Louis Stevenson and born in Edinburgh sets many of her delightful novels in Scotland. In this novel, set and written in the early 1950's when the impact of WWII, including rationing of food and petrol (gasoline) was still impacting the island of Britain, James returns from military service in the Far East to live on a farm in the Scottish boarders area with his aunt and uncle and learn to be a farmer.
This book contains some mystery, some romance, and much more. Real characters that the reader comes to care about. A location in Scotland that is a delight.
This book is the second in a trilogy. The first, Vittoria Cottage, is already available from Audible. Hopefully the third (titled Winter and Rough Weather in England and Shoulder the Sky in the US) will be added soon. Leslie Mackie has a delightful Scots accent that adds a touch of atmosphere to the story, while still being easy for the American listener to understand.

What made the experience of listening to Music in the Hills the most enjoyable?
If you are sick listening to the F word every sentence and you don’t want to think that men think only about sex and if you cannot stand Sebastian York’s voice this might be the series for you. I listened all the way through . It has a good story, it is of another time and it is beautiful. Hardworking folks, considerate, caring. Beautiful setting. Some intrigue.
I didn’t love the narration all the time, but it was good.
