This one seemed sadder than the others, mentions of the war as well as changes taking place in animal care. Makes me wonder what the next ones will be like, I like reading about 'the old ways'.

Liked the chapters with lambing - there were more of them than in previous books ^_^ but missed Tricki-Woo. :-(

Not so much Siegfried in this one but I loved the chapter when Helen got pregnant and he gave James £50 in his own special way.

Took longer to read because I had to get an assignment written. ( )
