This second book of the enormously popular series of (currently) 4 books, written by the incomparable Nick Albert, is sure to have you laughing out loud on occasions and feeling poignant on others. It follows on from Book 1 and is not to be missed if you're looking for a story with that ultimate 'feel-good' factor. Andy Stevenson narrates and delivers over 40 different character voices.
Nick and Lesley's desire for a better life in the countryside was a long-held dream. Unforeseen events and a leap of faith forced that dream into reality, but moving to rural Ireland was only the beginning of their story. Foreigners in a foreign land, they set about making new friends, learning the culture, and expanding their collection of chickens and unruly dogs. But their dream home was in desperate need of renovation - a mammoth task they attacked with the aid of a DIY manual, dwindling funds, and incompetent enthusiasm.
With defunct diggers, collapsing ladders, and shocking electrics, what could possibly go wrong? Will their new life live up to expectations, or will the Irish weather, dangerous roads, and a cruel twist of fate turn this dream into a nightmare?
