From the beloved and best-selling author of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series comes a heartwarming tale of hope and friendship set amid the turmoil of World War II. Val Eliot, a young woman working on an English farm during the war, meets Mike, a U.S. Air Force pilot stationed nearby. When Val rescues a Border Collie named Peter Woodhouse, who is being mistreated by his owner, she realizes the dog would actually be safer with Mike. And so Peter Woodhouse finds a new home on the air force base, and Val finds herself falling in love. Peter Woodhouse becomes Dog First Class, a canine mascot on the base who boldly accompanies the officers on their missions, and Val becomes Mike's fiancee. But then a disaster jeopardizes the future of them all, and Peter Woodhouse brings Ubi, a German corporal, into their orbit, sparking a friendship that comes with great risk but carries with it the richest of rewards. Infused with Alexander McCall Smith's renowned charm and warmth, The Good Pilot Peter Woodhouse is an uplifting story of love and the power of friendship to bring sworn enemies together.

Professional reviews

"Prepare for a most enjoyable trip into the unique world of Alexander McCall Smith. Set far from Scotland Street and farther still from Botswana, this gentle stand-alone tale takes place in England during WWII. David Rintoul's masterful performance has us laughing, aching, weeping, and smiling--rooting for the good guys and hoping for a happy ending. When Val meets an American pilot named Mike, they find love and make friends with Peter Woodhouse, a border collie. Peter Woodhouse becomes the mascot of the USAAF based in London, going on many bombing missions with the pilots. When the story shifts to Germany, Rintoul's German commander, Ubi, proves profoundly human. Between McCall Smith's imagination and Rintoul's honest rendering of all the characters, listeners have a heartwarming, intelligent audiobook awaiting them. S.J.H.
