If you don't know the Fairacre titles, Tyler's Row will be a surprising treat: charming and amusing, Miss Read perfectly details the peculiar advantages and disadvantages of living in a small English village.
Gossip is just part of village life and no one can escape its consequences. Filled with characters, most of whom you would not want to live amongst, let alone have as close neighbours, Tyler's Row is perhaps of particular relevance to townies who dream of retiring to a quiet rural haven. You have been warned.
Read with bravura and aplomb by the exceptional actress Carole Boyd, Tyler's Row will have you searching for more Fairacre audiobooks, which she has firmly set her stamp upon.
