About the Author:
Miss Read is the pseudonym of Mrs. Dora Saint, a former schoolteacher beloved for her novels of English rural life, especially those set in the fictional villages of Thrush Green and Fairacre. The first of these, Village School, was published in 1955, and Miss Read continued to write until her retirement in 1996. In the 1998, she was awarded an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire, for her services to literature. She lives in Berkshire.
Listening to this book is rather like sharing a pot of tea as Gwen Watford tells about the daily comings and goings of this English village. This tale is narrated with affection for the characters and a charming and quaint style of life that few listeners will have enjoyed. Timely issues related to providing adequate care and housing for aging residents and the adjustments required for relocation into elder housing are dealt with in the context of the story and its characters. Watford keeps the story moving and lively. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
