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.

From AudioFile:

Miss Read brings us another work about the daily activities of the inhabitants of Thrush Green, a cozy town in rural England. Gwen Watford, whose lyrical voice holds an appropriate English tone, is soft spoken but firm in her delivery. The story focuses primarily on Dorothy Watson and Agnes Fogerty, teachers who have announced they will retire at the end of the school year. Amid the loving gossip and speculation of the community, they look for a new house, learn how to drive a car, and add an abandoned tabby cat to their household. Watford's delightful portrayal of characters enhances this enjoyable journey to the country. F.L.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
