Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Yorkshire school inspector Gervase Phinn continues his wry observations of the schools he visits daily in the third of his "dale" memoirs. Phinn is in his 30s as the action unfolds, so this book includes his romance with elementary school teacher Miss Bentley, whom he marries. Because he falls hard for his fiancée, he aptly calls this memoir HEAD OVER HEELS. A James Herriot without the animals, the author clearly loves the surroundings he knows so well, but that love is tempered with honest laughter. He uses his Yorkshire lilt to convince listeners they have their own knees tucked up under small wooden desks and are gazing out the glass panes of tall school windows on the ever-enchanting green dales of the English North Country.
