Lark Rise to Candleford


A few weeks ago I lay down after the children were in bed to find my wife watching Lark Rise to Candleford.  I did not give it much of a chance at first.  After an episode or two my wife compared it to Little House on the Prairie.  I agreed.  I esteem it as the best show I have ever seen.  It is never crude.  It is historical.  It makes me laugh and cry and teaches important life lessons.  Of love found and lost.  Of the pride of the man of the house.  Of meddling in other's lives.  Of evolution and how to treat an estranged sibling.  Of how to treat the faith of other's when it is not your own.  Of owning my own faith.  Any many, many more.

It is only $1 an episode on Amazon.com.

Is it only available on Amazon or does it play on one of the cable networks?

I don't know if it plays on any cable networks or not. I don't use cable. I am sure there is some resource on the net that would tell you.
It is also available on YouTube. I only mentioned the Amazon because I think it is worth supporting financially.

It is good to hear from you.
