This book follows All Creatures Great and Small. James Herriot has been working as a veterinarian in Darrowby for several years. Upon getting married, he became partners with his boss Siegfried. This book covers that time period up until he joins the RAF in World War II.
He describes many of his visits to the farms and his various animal patients and their owners with such affection that you can tell he truly loves it there. Even when he describes difficult people he has encountered, he tells the stories with such humor. Sometimes he reminisces back to times he was dating his wife Helen. He also describes many of the old procedures veterinarians had to use back then before the medical advances in this field.
I love the writing style of this author. He brings you into his world and you enjoy being there. Another 5-star rating.
