Notwithstanding, CD-Audio Book


From the author of Captain Corelli's "Mandolin"; here comes a heart-warming collection of stories inspired by life in an English village.

Casting his mind back to the village where he grew up, Louis de Bernieres brings us a forgotten England: where a lady might dress in plus fours, a retired general might give up wearing clothes and a spiritualist might live with her sister and the ghost of her husband.

Here we find the atmosphere of those times as it was in the countryside, and the people whose lives are worth celebrating.

This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.
