Times are changing in the charming downland village of Fairacre, and Miss Read isn't certain that it's all for the best. The new commuter lifestyle has caused a drop in attendance at the local school, and officials are threatening closure. Miss Read worries about the failing health of Dolly Clare. Vegetable gardens have given way to trips to the Caxley markets, and the traditional village fete now includes a prize for best quiche. With her trademark patience and good humor, Miss Read hopes for the best and plans for the worst as the village grows increasingly modern. Despite all the innovations, Fairacre still retains its essential elements: gentle wit, good manners, and the comfort of caring neighbors.

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:
Even Fairacre, England, is feeling the intrusion of the modern world in 1991. Miss Read herself is the heroine of this chronicle of village life. June Barrie has the joy of musing aloud on the changes, both welcome and worrisome, for this head teacher of Fairacre School. The most pressing of all problems is the possibility that the tiny school may have to close. In this book, unlike many of the others in the series, Miss Read travels to Wales and to Scotland, so, if somewhat minimally, the listener hears Barrie's capability with other accents. The overwhelming feeling of coziness and sanity that these books exude is augmented by Barrie's clear and warm tone. The combination of her voice and the story is spellbinding. B.H.B.
