That is true in all our lives, but even when momentous things do happen sometimes they are events that happen more to others who we know well, then ourselves. That big events come and we are on the periphery.
Craddock has that, and now, we see the pass In the end of the trilogy we see the grand design of Delderfield. Craddock has that, and now, we see the passing of the reins to the next generation. The shifting viewpoints and stories are such that this gives us even more depth into our hero and not as much into the POVs we share as we learn more of our hero. We see in the trilogy the Young man, the middle aged man, and the older man. One line resonates when he talks about politics and how he has been the left, the right and the center in his views over the course of a long lifetime.
We experience the end of life with several views of the valley, mostly seen through the eyes of our Hero, the views through the animals was purely a device that did not work well. As we follow what has happened over the course of 60 years we see change, and stasis.
In all a good conclusion. If I were younger myself, I might be tempted to have another read before my own end. As it is, I find that at this stage I can Identify with the stages of life we see in the book. Jan 22, Ron Wroblewski rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the third and final book of the trilogy. It follows Paul Craddock from is early 20s in to age 86 in Paul was squire of a acre farm in southwest England.
What I like about Delderfield is that I feel that I am right there, doing what they are doing and feeling what they are feeling. Paul lived a good life, with a wonderful wife, doing his best to help others and do the right thing. At some points I would applaud and at others world find myself saying, "No, don't do that. Ca This is the third and final book of the trilogy.
Can't you see the trouble you will have". His characters seem real, and that is the mark of a good novel. Sep 07, C rated it it was amazing Shelves: Following on from the heady heights of the first book and the disappointing lows of the second, this book finished the trilogy nicely and - if it wasn't quite as good as book one - was a definite improvement on its predecessor.
Delderfield is fantastic at tracking the progress of time, changing attitudes and changing landscapes, while still showing the continuity of everyday life. The ending is brilliant, worthy almost of a Mary Stewart, and by the end all of the characters except, perhaps, the Following on from the heady heights of the first book and the disappointing lows of the second, this book finished the trilogy nicely and - if it wasn't quite as good as book one - was a definite improvement on its predecessor.
The ending is brilliant, worthy almost of a Mary Stewart, and by the end all of the characters except, perhaps, the absent Whiz and Ian have done something to win you back to them. It deals with complex if slightly unrealistic moral dilemmas well, and as a landscape of social change presents, across the trilogy, some very interesting and unusual thoughts on such a turbulent period.
Oct 13, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely loved this book and the whole trilogy of "A Horseman Riding By".

I listened to the audiobook version, and I don't know if I'd have had the patience to read the written version, because that's thousands of pages. But the narrator, Jonathan Oliver, really made the audio edition come alive. This is historical fiction as it should be: I'm even a bit sad I've finished it.
It's one of those rare books that you hate to have end, even though there's such a sense of fulfillment having followed the lives of these people from Book 1 beginning at the end of the Boer War all the way to the s. A masterfully written tale full of wonderful characters and story lines Oct 17, Barb rated it it was amazing. What a wonderful book!
There were 1, pages and I hated to see it come to an end -- how many books can you say that about?! Delderfield's characters are so believable -- and I love the way he would introduce a character then when the character re-appears hundreds of pages later, he would give you just a couple of words so you would know immediately who he was talking about instead of saying "who was he again?

Apr 22, Sue rated it it was amazing. I love Family Saga's and English novels. Delderfield is one of my favorite author's. Delderfield is an old-fashioned English storyteller. He creates real characters that you care about and are sad to leave when the last page is read.
Oct 12, Catherine Adde rated it really liked it. Delderfield is one of my favourite authors and it's no wonder they made a BBC series based on this saga. I just LOVE this author!! I have read several of his books and this 3-part series A Horseman Riding By is one of my absolute favorites. I hated to see these people go.
