Book Description

A celebration causes trouble in the village of Thrush Green... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Miss Read, in real life Dora Saint, was a teacher by profession who started writing after the Second World War, beginning with light essays written for Punch and other journals. She then wrote on educational and country matters and worked as a scriptwriter for the BBC. Miss Read was married to a schoolmaster for sixty-four years until his death in 2004, and they had one daughter. Miss Read was awarded an MBE in the 1998 New Year Honours list for her services to literature. She was the author of many immensely popular books, including two autobiographical works, but it was her novels of English rural life for which she was best known. The first of these, Village School, was published in 1955, and Miss Read continued to write about the fictional villages of Fairacre and Thrush Green for many years. She lived near Newbury in Berkshire until her death in 2012. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have been reading miss read books since I was seventeen (many years now) her gossipy tales of country life smooth away the stresses of my day as I settle down to sleep, as nothing is as soothing as her depictions of the folk in her books going about their daily lives with small dramas thrown in I feel like I know each character personally and can only wish that there was more from this author concluding these books would not be to everyone's taste but I love them ,this kindle version is fine and properly proof read buy with confidence

The Miss Read books are my comfort blanket, a source of pleasure and gentle humour when everyday life has got too hectic. Like going back to the days of my childhood plus my own teaching days. Very pleasant.

Great, another enjoyable book from this writer! What a shame that these books are difficult to get on the high street as they are quite pricey online
