Strong of will and slender of ankle, 20-year-old orphan Flora Poste is blessed with every virtue save that of being able to earn her own living. Casting around for suitable relatives with whom she can make her home, Flora alights on the mysterious Starkadders and, ignoring the horrified shrieks of her friends, heads down to darkest Sussex.

There she is confronted by an exceptionally odd cast of characters: grief-stricken Judith, fervently religious Amos, the lusty smouldering Seth, wild and mysterious Elfine and, of course, the invisible tyrant Great Aunt Ada Doom who saw something nasty in the woodshed. Many would be overcome by the simmering passions of the Starkadder family, but not Flora. All they need is a little organising.

Stella Gibbons' deliciously witty parody has been delighting readers since 1932 and retains its original sunny charm in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

    " It was a struggle to finish this book, and probably wouldn't have bothered if I wasn't doing this reading challenge thing. While the writing was okay and the style quite unique, I found it dated and not suiting my sense of humour. Maybe 80 years ago I would have found it hilarious, but for me, time has moved on. "

    " I laughed out loud several times throughout this novel. I admit candidly that I saw the film before I knew it was a book, but I adore them both. Flora Poste is a bit more grounded in the novel. The classic lines "I saw something nasty in the woodshed" and "there have always been Starkadders at Cold Comfort Farm" were delightful, but Gibbons occasional commentary made me just grin like an idiot. I loved this satire of the Hardy/Lawrence Sussex "
