This is a collection of stories about a small town veterinarian, James Herriot. I laughed, I cried and I even know some of these people in these tales! I was captivated from start to finish.

I loved this audiobook! The narrator is fantastic with his perfect accent! Totally made the whole book.

You do not want to miss the antics involved in this heart warming read! The animals and their owners will keep you entertained!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

I can't think why I haven't read this marvelous book before! It's a lot of fun and I like the way he tells how it was when he was starting out in practice but also how the improvements in veterinary medicine have helped the domesticated animals. He relates his own foibles as he deals with the varied human characters as well as the others.
This program is read by Nicholas Ralph, star of the new PBS Masterpiece series and his interpretation is wonderful! I love listening to him as he portrays Herriot and everyone else.
I requested and received a free audio copy from MacMillan Audio via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )

A look into a veterinary practice in the English countryside of the 1930's. Follow James Herriot at the beginning of his practice and marriage until he leaves for his call-up to war.

A delightful read. ( )

Epigraph
All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all. Cecil Francis Alexander 1818-1895
Dedication
With love to my wife and to my mother in dear old Glasgow town
First words
As I crawled into bed and put my arm around Helen it occurred to me, not for the first time, that there are few pleasures in this world to compare with snuggling up to a nice woman when you are half frozen.
