Batch Magna is a small, close-knit village on the border between England and Wales. Much of the property is owned by the General who dies and leaves it all to a distant American nephew, Sir Humphrey Strange. Some of the residents of Batch Magna are given eviction notices by Sir Humphrey and the community is in an uproar. When Humph comes to visit to further his plans for a vacation village, hilarity ensues.
For this American book reviewer, the unusual dialect was sometimes difficult to read and decipher but I enjoyed the story. I look forward to the sequels. The Cuckoos of Batch Magna gets an A.
