Neither thumbs up nor thumbs down for The Other Side of the Dale by Gervase Phinn. Nonfiction/Autobiography.
Easy to read vacation book, pleasant but forgettable. Read Herriot instead.
‘Now that is serious. Never neglect your love life, Gervase. You cannot beat the love of a good woman. Wherever would I be without my Lila – my long-suffering wife of twenty-eight years. When you start looking seriously in the direction of the opposite sex, I shall take it upon myself to give you my undivided help and assistance and introduce you to some eligible young women of my acquaintance. I am something of an expert on women. If fact, come to think of it, I am something of an expert in most things. You aren’t looking for a car by any chance, are you?’
