This book was as expected. Some old stories, a lot of new content that has not been published before and an insight into Dora Saint, the author which I found very interesting. At 305 pages long it is a good read. 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.
