Prepare for a most enjoyable trip into the unique world of Alexander McCall Smith. Set far from Scotland Street and farther still from Botswana, this gentle stand-alone tale takes place in England during WWII. David Rintoul's masterful performance has us laughing, aching, weeping, and smiling--rooting for the good guys and hoping for a happy ending. When Val meets an American pilot named Mike, they find love and make friends with Peter Woodhouse, a border collie. Peter Woodhouse becomes the mascot of the USAAF based in London, going on many bombing missions with the pilots. When the story shifts to Germany, Rintoul's German commander, Ubi, proves profoundly human. Between McCall Smith's imagination and Rintoul's honest rendering of all the characters, listeners have a heartwarming, intelligent audiobook awaiting them. S.J.H.
