9780618238583: At Home in Thrush Green (Thrush Green Series #8)
It is spring in the village of Thrush Green. In neighboring Lulling, Charles Henstock admires the blooming garden of his new vicarage, glad that the squabbles with his parishoners in Affairs at Thrush Green are settled. And yet the good vicar wistfully recalls his former home - the ugly, old rectory of Thrush Green, which burned to the ground. Now, from the rectory's ruins, the villagers are building eight retirement homes for the older folks most in need. But how to choose who will live there? How will they get on together? And how will they accommodate the dogs, cats, and birds that must come along? The spring has brought a new crop of dilemmas, but Dr. Henstock and the villagers are determined to make the old people feel at home in Thrush Green.
In the end, harmony is restored to this tiny fictional world. With wit and grace, Miss Read has charmed numerous critics and won the loyalty of readers who will happily find themselves once more At Home in Thrush Green.

About the Author:

Miss Read (1913-2012) was 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. 

From AudioFile:
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
