Product Description

Book Description

There are newcomers to the village of Thrush Green¿

Product Description

Charles Henstock, vicar of Thrush Green, is living in his new vicarage after the old one burned down. In its place are eight retirement homes, but there's heated debate in the village about the new residents. How to choose who will live there? How will they get on together? And how will they accommodate all the pets?

Meanwhile the old residents have their worries. At the school Miss Watson learns that her brother has had an accident; an argument flares up between Edward Young and Dr Lovell; and Dottie Harmer becomes dottier by the day.

If you want nostalgia, and something to give you happy thoughts as you go to bed, then read Miss Read's stories of Thrush Green, the characters are charming. I couldn't put the book down as I became so involved with the villagers goings on, I needed to find out more about their lives. Having the Thrush Green stories is like having a gentle soap opera to hand.

I love Miss Read books. They are always well written, gently amusing and as a teacher, I can personally relate to many of the stories. A bit of gentle escapism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrush Green Stable 18 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent series as are all Miss Read series. A way of life I remember only too well in my childhood and the whole is well penned describing life just, as indeed, it was. One cared about the characters and it's good to know that when the last page of the last book(penned by the author herself) was turned over, all the characters were not gone but simply within the covers of those books to open again whenever one wanted.
