Fiction • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1967

The sense of history here is that of common people living in small town England. There are no extravagances with Miss Read, just the sadnesses and pleasures of living. The story tells of three generations of two interwoven families, the Norths and the Howards, and of WWII. Wonderfully detailed, THE HOWARDS OF CAXLEY, brings the listener back to more sensible times, quieter times, more thoughtful times. June Barrie does a charming and memorable job with the people and plots in this gentle narration. The characters are marvelous--this listener would enjoy knowing both these families. As an escape from the violence and confusion of the 21st century, this is a delightful listen. B.H.B.
