A new excitement comes to the village of Thrush Green when Harold Shoosmith, a distinguished bachelor who has chosen the village for his retirement, takes the corner house on the green. Harold is soon enmeshed in village politics and becomes involved in the private lives of his neighbours as well. His presence has a dramatic effect on Dimity Dean and Ella Bembridge and is the cause of a serious misunderstanding between the two friends.
And the village’s widowed rector finds in Harold a new friend who gives him the courage to end his lonely state.

I love Miss Read and have done since I read my mother’s copies. This winter has seen snow and cold rain, so evenings by the fire, listening to June Barrie narrate have been blissful.
Beautifully written your mind is emersed in the characters and there lives. a must read.
