Narrator Jonathan Keeble's mastery of Tim Pears's quietly beautiful and evocative writing is one of the many pleasures in this final installment of his West Country Trilogy. Set in rural southwest England in the early 1900s, the audiobooks conjure the pace, sounds, and sights of a lost world. Following the intertwining lives of Leo, the carpenter's son, and Lottie, the daughter of the local estate, this volume brings us to WWI and beyond in a story that is absorbing, undramatic, and deeply satisfying. Keeble's warm, melodious narration could float on the air of a late summer afternoon in the Devon countryside. And he colors Pears's detailed character studies with telling accents and personality, creating a world in which one wishes to forever remain. A.C.S.
