it's not the TV series

by obsessedreader on Jul 17, 2012

Totally enraptured with the BBC series, "Lark Rise to Candleford," I'd ordered this book, hoping for details to fill in gaps (especially now that the series has been abruptly cancelled). The book, while lovely and most informative, does not especially deal with incidents enacted on the series. The TV episodes are obviously inspired by the book, but they take on a life of their own (which I have savored!). Therefore, I do not recommend this book to those who love the show: the reader will get virtually no enlightenment. The book is a wonderful study of the life and culture of a certain span of time. Names of characters appear. . .fleetingly.

I'd compare this to the American series Little House on the Prairie. It's just the description of village life, a lifestyle that fewer and fewer grandparents/great-grandparents are around to talk about. The "plot" itself isn't much; it's just a sort of coming-of-age tale. It's the little details that made the book for me.
