The order I made was easy to process and the book arrived before expected. It was well packaged and in good condition. Reading a Miss Read book is like sitting in a comfy armchair by a real fire sipping cocoa. her books are mainly about life in two villages. Thrush Green and Fairacre.. They are based in the fifties and sixties and take you back to a more simple time when people left there doors open,. The characters are so well described you know them as if they are your neighbour. A lot of the books revolve around the village school. And in this tale Miss Read, the headmistress hurts her arm at the beginning of the summer holidays and is invited by her friend to go to Crete for a holiday. It is written with warmth and humour. If you have already read some of Miss Reads books then you will enjoy this change of scene. If you've never read Miss Read I'd suggest the first book I ever read, 'Thrush Green.'
