Richard Warren, aged ten, is growing up in the North Yorkshire village of Ledder Bridge. Through verdant fields and meandering brooks, life is simple and easy, far from the turmoil of the Cold War world. When an adventure with his older brother Peter Warren goes wrong and Richard finds himself trapped in the dark depths of an abandoned quarry, it kick-starts a chain of events that brings him into contact with work, family conflict, and the dreaded English class system. Will Richard be able to persevere and become wise well beyond his tender years?

1964 is a charming coming of age story that captures the heart and the imagination. Author James Farner brings 1960s England and the heart and mind of a ten year old boy fully to life as he navigates life. I am excited to move forward to the next book in the Made in Yorkshire series and to find out what happens next with young Richard. I highly recommend this endearing series!
