This is my favourite Angela Thirkell novel and Jilly Bond provides an excellent narration (I think my only quibble would be Mr Tebben's accent, which I see no reason for). It's a complete froth of a story - with everyone home for the summer and eating all the raspberries, Mrs Palmer decides that it's the perfect moment to stage a Greek drama in the family's concerted barn, and commandeers all the young people and half the village residents. Against this background people discover real and imagined loves, and Gunnar the cat behaves badly whenever he can. Delicious.
