Sintesi dell'editore

‘As I have been given a large and magnificent diary for Christmas... I intend to fill it in as long as my ardour lasts.’ Luckily, Miss Read’s ardour lasts all year, encompassing every aspect of Fairacre life.

Whether embroiled unwillingly in her friend Amy’s marital hiccups, discussing the changing world with Miss Clare or the modern problems of good local education and rural impoverishment with the schools inspector and the doctor, she remains balanced, humorous and wise and never forgets either her most important charge, the mixed bag of children in her school, or the joys of the changing seasons.

Village diary

This is marvellous. The humour, the events, the history. All told in wonderful tones of english diction and great sense of humour. I lived it with her, and when it ended I rushed to buy another one in the series. Fantastic.

A good listen on a sunny afternoon in a deck chair remembering your lost childhood, before the kids call they are hungry

Lovely Comforting Tales from Fairacre

I loved this book, real feel good stories, just as Miss Read always delivered. One little complaint though, not just for this book. Is Tibby a boy or a girl, half the time it is he and the other half she please sort this out and make updates to the audio.

Gentle, enjoyable series

What made the experience of listening to Village Diary the most enjoyable?

Rediscovering old friends in Thrush Green and Fairacre has been very enjoyable. I read all of Miss Read's books many years ago and having them read to me has been very pleasant.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Village Diary?

I enjoyed all of it.

Have you listened to any of Gwen Watford’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Gwen Watford is an excellent narrator for Miss Read's books, She is by far the best of those I have heard.

Hooray For Miss Read

Whether it is a Miss Read novel or one of Thrush Green, I always feel soothed & happy listening to Gwen Watford narrating these stories. She is my absolute favourite for these books & is part of the magic. These are not fairy stories, but tell of everyday life, with its sadness & happiness, but from an era when values were different. Relish the nostalgia!

How Refreshing.

Such a truly delightful diary it takes me back to my tender years as a child and how much I now admire the hard work and patience that went into teaching back then but village life even then is so refreshingly brought to life with all the characters and such a wonderful narration by Gwen I really enjoyed this and have now downloaded more Miss Read to listen to.

Always a lovely break from reality!

Have loved Miss Read books for decades, so much so l always hoped l would live in a village and my children would attend the local school. which they did! Miss Read is witty, wry and endearingly observant of human strengths and weaknesses. l dip into her books when l want a break from my usual reads of medieval history, thrillers and classics. They never fail to make smile and feel grounded.

Charming

This is such a gentle book. The characters are so well drawn and it is delight to be taken back so many years to a simpler time and to be immersed in village life. It is lovely to listen to as a bedtime story
