If you have never read a James Herriot story about his life as a country veterinarian in England, an authentic, uplifting happiness awaits you. I have been going back to them in the stress of pandemic paralysis. I read them before bedtime and always go to sleep with a smile on my face. Like eating the best bread ever, you think how can this simple fare make me feel so satisfied and happy? These are also perfect for reading with younger family members. This is book 1 of a 5 book series.
