The voice of her final book , Christmas in Thrush Green, was totally different as it was done by Jenny Dereham and just wasn't the same. I will just have to keep re-reading all my collection again.
This is a nice addition for anyone who is a true Miss Read fan but feel it should be the last one now.
With the title as it is, 'Mrs Griffin Sends Her Love', one could have expected the lady herself to come into more prominence. One very short sentence couldn't really supply a title. One can speculate, but how did 'Miss Read' see her? Her descriptions always brought characters to life, but here there is silence.
On the whole, I enjoyed the read, but would hesitate to recommend it to anyone who had not read any of 'Miss Read's' books. Had I read this as my first contact I feel I would not have looked for all the delightful books under the Miss Read name. I would not have ventured into the 'Miss Read' world.
Whilst it is attractively presented and most people will learn something new about their favourite author, its format means it is not as satisfying as a 'proper' Miss Read story.
The articles and stories here are of various lengths and subjects although most revolve around village schools and the author's experiences in them. There is plenty of content and I enjoyed it all. This is not a taxing read but Dora Saint writes in an engaging and charming way about things that are true and from her experience. Her success comes not just from the charm of her writing but from the depiction of real people and situations - without that dept her stories and other writings would be superficial and easily forgotten.
This is a lovely collection, especially for the fan, with some fascinating writing in the manner that made her so successful. I received a free copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley.
