I came upon this series after the recommendation of a British friend. So glad I did! It's the story of two nearby villages (one a small town and the other a hamlet) and how the lives of the inhabitants intertwine, all revolving around the post office and postmistress and the young girl who comes to work with her. All the characters are interesting and varied and you quickly become involved in their interesting lives. Such a contrast to the way we live today. I will watch the entire 4 seasons. Highly recommended!
