When I was about 14 years old I got hooked on the PBS series All Creatures Great And Small. This prompted me to read the book by James Herriot, followed by the other three books in the series. I adored these books. The humor, compassion and emotion really hit a nerve with the awkward, nerdy and socially inept girl that I was. When I was on complete bed rest with my unborn daughter 7 years ago I re-read all them (after all what else was there to do?) Re-reading them again brought back all the warm, happy feelings I got when I first read them.

I loved those books, too, and it wouldn't surprise me that they hold up well.
