Gentle, humorous Mr. Chipping had been known familiarly to three generations of English schoolboys at Brookfield, as Mr. Chips. As he sat in his pleasant room across from the entrance to the school, Mr. Chips recalled his life there, the jokes he had made which had become classics, and the thousands he had known and regarded as "his boys." And just as gently as he lived, he faded smilingly out of life

Charles Rainier's family feared him lost along with so many of Britain's youth during the Great War. But two years after he was reported missing in action, he appears in a Liverpool hospital with no memory of the time that has passed. Rainier marries and embarks on a life of relative success, but he still cannot recall his time on the battlefield--until the first bombs of the Second World War begin to fall. Suddenly, his memories flood back. Now, recollections of a violent battlefield, a German prison, and a passionate affair all threaten to fracture the peaceful life he has worked so hard to create"--|cProvided by publisher

An ambitious man looks back on his choices in World War I-era England in this #1 New York Times bestseller by the author of Goodbye, Mr. Chips. As a young man, George Boswell knew he had greater prospects ahead than those offered by his native mill town in the north of England. A respected lawyer and civic leader, he possessed the skill and charisma to shine on the national stage. But ambition is not without a cost. When Boswell must choose between the promise of a bright future or staying behind for the people who have come to depend on him, his decision comes at a shocking price. So Well Remembered is a story of a people pulled reluctantly toward modernity amid the farms and factories of Lancashire, and a celebration of the steadfast character of the common English village

Nothing so strange by James Hilton( Book )

36 editions published between 1947 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of two modern people-a young American who, both as a scientist and as a man, faced some of the biggest problems of our times; and the girl who gave him all her heart and brain. When Jane met Dr. Mark Bradley in London she was only eighteen. She and her mother were both attracted by "Brad," and the situation thus engendered proved fateful, since it led to Brad's association with a great Viennese physicist and to his involvement in a tragic drama. But there was another drama, larger and less personal, that drew him into its widening orbit, a drama that became a secret and later an obsession. Probing yet protective, Jane's love makes the strong thread in a pattern of deeply moving and significant events-strange events, too-and yet, to quote Daniel Webster, there is often "nothing so strange" as the truth"--Provided by publisher
Mrs. Miniver by William Wyler( Visual )

21 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This story of an average English middle-class family begins with the summer of 1939; when the sun shone down on a happy, careless people, who worked and played, reared their children and tended their gardens in that happy, easy-going England that was so soon to be fighting desperately for her way of life and for life itself."--Title screens. [The film] dramatizes the effect of the Second World War on the English at home. Mrs. Kay Miniver's tranquil domestic existence is torn to shreds by the winds of war: her husband, Clem, disappears on a secret volunteer mission; eldest son, Vin, joins the RAF; and the village faces regular German bombings with a typically British stiff-upper-lip. Embodying understated British courage in the face of danger, Mrs. Miniver's mission is to stay alive, and keep her family together with hope, strength, and dignity

Like Goodbye Mr Chips, this story has a mostly school setting. It begins with Colin Revell, an Oxford graduate who makes his money through article writing, whilst working on his epic satire written in iambic pentameter. At his time at Oxford he also showed some skill in resolving the odd mystery or two and it is because of that, that the headmaster of his old boarding school Oakington, has written to him to visit the school for the weekend. The headmaster wishes him to look into a death which occurred 3 months ago of a pupil called Robert Marshall. Robert died when a gas fitting fell on top of him whilst he was asleep in his dormitory. Except from getting a bit of local colour about the residents of the school there doesn't seem to be much of a case, except for the odd behaviour of the headmaster. It was odd that Revell was even called in, but it is even odder when the next day the headmaster changes his mind and doesn't think Robert's death is anything but an accident

Mr Chipping, classics master at Brookfield school since 1870, an old man, is reflecting upon his life in education.

Martin Jarvis is the perfect reader, as his lilting and soothing voice carries a reader along on a swell of nostalgia, leaving them wishing that they could have been there to celebrate all of Mr. Chipping's happiness's with him
