Oh! To be in England CD-Audio
by H. E. Bates
Narrated by Philip Franks
Part of the The Larkin Novels series
In the third sequel to The Darling Buds of May, Charley and Mariette decide to get baby Blenheim christened, leading to a wholesale christening of all seven of the Larkin children.
Chaos abounds as the vicar Mr Candy is run ragged by the naughty twins Zinnia and Petunia, and finds himself the object of desire for Pop's second eldest, Primrose.
To top it all off, Pop buys a fairground on a whim, and Mlle DuPont arrives to discover t hat Pop is not a Lord, nor does he live in a mansion.
The result is a celebratory ending and a wonderful tribute to Pop's beloved countryside, with its 'nightingales and blackbirds, bluebells and primroses, haytime and high summer'.
