In August Folly, the village of Worsted is staging Hippolytus. Inevitably, the most absurd romances bloom. Boorish young Richard Tebben, just down from Oxford, falls in love with Mrs. Dean, mother of nine, whose oldest son loves Richard's sister, who in turn loves another. And round and round it goes. Amidst a series of comic catastrophes, everyone manages to redeem themselves.

Witty, snobbish, sweet, and evocative, Mrs. Thirkell's Barsetshire novels provide a bemused scrutiny of British manners in the most delightfully entertaining doses. Download and start listening now!

    " This is one of the first Angela Thirkell books I read, and I really enjoyed it. All of her books are about normal everyday people, but she finds humor in everything. She is a very charming writer! "

    " Poor Mrs. Tebben and poor Richard, who is an ungrateful wretch but shown in as good a light as he ever warranted when he saves little Jessica from the mad bull. The romance between Helen and Mr. Fanshawe is a special treat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha | 5/27/2010

    " Takes a while to get used to the characters and to find out that they're generally likeable, because most of them have issues. Lots of people to keep track of. Wasn't sure how much I was enjoying it at least a third of the way through, but it ended well. "
