One of my favorite Christmas gifts came in the form of 14 discs, penned by Flora Thompson between 1939 and 1943.

What makes Lark Rise to Candleford a fave:

  • Breathtaking scenery. Late 19th century England countryside at its best.
  • Characters. In every sense of the word. Some sweet, some sassy.
  • Wholesome plots. How often can you say that these days?
  • Minnie, the maid. She’s my favorite character of all. Quirky and a true delight.

Lark Rise to Candleford is shown on ETV Saturday and Sunday nights at 7:00. Check your local listing for more information.

Or, if you prefer to clear 34 episodes (and counting) off the DVR, pick up the complete collection here. You won’t be disappointed. 

British Classics. It’s my one weakness. 

If you’re a fan, who is your favorite character and why?
