In the rural hamlet of Lark Rise and the market town of Candleford, life is marked by the pattern of the seasons and the customs of the countryside. Seen through the eyes of a young girl, Laura - based on Flora Thompson herself - 'Lark Rise to Candleford' portrays May Day celebrations and forgotten children's games, friends and relations, rivalries and lasting friendships.

Full of gaiety and freshness of observation, this semi-autobiographical account is an endearing portrayal of a vanished way of life and a lost corner of England. Download and start listening now!

    " It reads like an assignment from English history. Interesting, but slow if you're looking for more story. I read the first part of the trilogy and enjoyed the details on Lark Rise hamlet living. However, it's time for me to move on to other books. Perhaps I'll finish this in the future. "

    " An enchanting view into peasant life during the 19th century in England, the book is written with attention to detail, dialogue, and vivid descriptions of the life of farmers, masons, gentry, clery, teachers, mothers and children in the country villages. I expected the book to be like the PSB shows with that same title, but it was more descriptive and historical than narrative. However, it is beautifully written and has been a joy to read. Flora Thompson seems to have a photograph memory of her childhood and of life in England in her hamlet and shares her fascinating memories with her readers. I am grateful she did. "

    " Sweet book. Amazing that the tv writers got so many stories from between the lines. "

    " Interesting glimpse into life in an English village at the end of the 19th century. I was hoping to get more of Laura's story, though - especially the first two parts were mainly just general descriptions of living conditions, habits, etc., so it got a bit long-winded at times. "
