    more from this reviewer

    I Also Recommend:

    A beautifully written image of rural English country life from days gone past.

    I decided to buy this book after watching the BBC series based on it. I loved the series and was delighted to learn that not only was it based on a true story but that the book was availiable. I can honestly say I was not dissapointed in my purchase. While at times the story is slower than the series it includes much more description of country life, which to me an avid scholar of history was fantastic. The great story at the heart of this tale is still intact though and I found myself recognizing lines straight out of the tv series. I would recomend this to anyone who is a fan of a good story and has an interest in English history. For those though that may find the long pages of description to cumbersome I would definatley suggest you check out the BBC version which has much more action and the same great characters. The BBC series is also availiable on DVD from Barnes & Noble. Series 1 now and Series 2 next year.

    A small but an important account of Rural England

    Although set in Oxfordshire this is typical of life in any County of England away from the large industrial towns in the late 1800's. Being so it could almost be the long awaited historical textbook without the reader having to pay attention to dates, important people & special events. It is by far one of the best accounts of ordinary people, their lives, loves & fatalities that I have read in a long time. The knowledge base is factual & as such paints a realistic picture of individuals & their effects within & on this small community.
    I am not going to drone on, its an excellent read & although fiction it would be better suited under the non-fiction section of our bookshelves.
