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. 

Review:

"Miss Read has three great gifts--an unerring intuition about human frailty, a healthy irony, and surprisingly, an almost beery sense of humor." (The New Yorker)

"Humor guides her pen but charity steadies it. Her portraits are delightful." (Time Literary Supplement (London))
