About the Author:

MISS READ, or in real life, Dora Saint, is a teacher by profession. She began her writing career with light essays for PUNCH and other journals. She has written on educational and country matters, and has worked as a scriptwriter for the BBC. JUNE WHITFIELD is one of Britain's leading comedy actresses, and is best known for her television performances in TERRY AND JUNE and ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.

From AudioFile:

Many readers cannot do justice to Miss Read's enchanting books; happily San Phillips is the exception. Her presentation fits all the Fairacre characters perfectly. The village has its share of types, from the vicar, to the ungrammatical school children, to grumpy Mrs. Pringle. Each character is fittingly presented, and many become recognizable. Miss Read excels at description and dialogue, which the narrator aptly handles. The title suggests pathos, which Phillips handles with sparkle, rather than tears. Anyone who enjoys reading about people and their foibles will fall in love with Miss Read. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
