Sintesi dell'editore

The Cotswold village of Thrush Green is a particularly close-knit community, where many of the inhabitants have known each other since childhood, and any unusual events are quickly noted. The visit of retired schoolteachers Miss Watson and Miss Fogerty gives great pleasure to all. The new headmaster, Alan Lester, is cautiously approved, but rumour is rife about his wife's health. The behaviour of farmer Percy Hodge is also the cause of local speculation.

All these matters and more are faced by our old friends the Henstocks, the Youngs, Winnie Bailey, Dotty Harmer, and the Shoosmiths.

Bask in nostalgia

I love Miss Read books. They are an oasis in a brash modern world. Some of the references are of their time and wouldn't be acceptable now but this doesn't spoil my enjoyment. Gwen Watson has the perfect voice as Narrator. I'm completely absorbed in the goings on of the residents of Thrush Green and Lulling. Like sinking into a warm bath or enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.
