    A truly underrated book Loved it Perhaps it's because I dream of moving West and living the good life by a river full of Kingfishers and wildlife It's well written and consistently interesting throughout Given that Phillipa isn't an author as such hats off to her The TV series is also well worth a watch

    This book is by Philippa Forrester the TV presenter not Helen Forrester the Liverpool family saga author It's an account of the making of a film about the Wiltshire river next to the house where she and wildlife cameraman Charlie Hamilton James live notable for otters and kingfishers I haven't actually seen the TV programme but I did find the series of later films they made by which time the delightful baby Fred had two younger siblings beautiful funny and heartening a brilliant combination of superb wildlife programming and the reality of family life in which otters and Mario Kart hold eual fascination We also have a gorgeous coffee table volume of Hamilton James' kingfisher photographyI enjoyed this book which starts at the beginning in two ways with Charlie's love of this particular river since he was a boy and with the story of how his and Philippa's relationship and setting up home by the river came about It's a fairly straightforward tale of wildlife film making folk and rural life The kingfishers and the otters are the stars but Mr Smooth the trout the ducks and the chickens are given a goodly piece of the action and it was nice to see mink treated as troublesome but undemonic Unsurprisingly nature is red in tooth and clawI enjoyed seeing Fred grow up moving from his first word otta to providing his own uniue commentary over the final film when everyone was gathered to watch the broadcast

    While not know primarily to the public for her writing skills Philippa Forrester writes beautifully and the book not only tells a great story but kept me hooked from beginning to endThe story is of her meeting the man who would become her husband wildlife film maker Charlie Hamilton James who has since become something of a legend as one of the knoweldgeable Otter and Kingfisher experts in the business They move in together start a family and most significantly for the narrative of the book devote a year of their lives to filming and producing a documentary on the river that runs past the back of their houseIt's a wonderful story beautifully told from the point of view of a city girl who's learning to love nature in the most minutest of details
