      Laura continues life in the post office, recording the lives and foibles of the people around her...

      I came to the second season of Larkrise to Candleford with high hopes, and for the better part all was delivered as promised.

      As before, Laura continues life in the post office, recording the lives and foibles of the people around her, sometimes becoming involved herself as she and her firm but mischievous boss Dorcas Lane always manage to get themselves in the centre of - as Dorcas loves a bit of meddling.

      This season also marks the beginning of a whirlwind love affair between Laura and traveling clock maker Fisher Bloom (who made a brief and slightly disappointing comeback in the next season) which really spiced things up a bit when Laura had to start making adult decisions!

      I do feel, when referring to the book that the writers struggled for a while to pull more stories and characters from the text while still staying true to the world they put so much into for the first season. Nevertheless, I believe that where a few of these episodes sink into the background, a few outstanding ones leap to the front and make it as memorable as the first.

      I believe more will be gained from watching this series if it is viewed as a separate thing from the book, as the stories do run a bit thin from time to time where gaps have been hastily filled. All forgiven though, still very enjoyable!
