Excellent of its kind. A fore-runner to the Jan Karon sort of story. A small English village and its everyday life and people, set in post WWII. Miss Read has written dozens of books about the simple life of a small village. The people are warm and real, and the author is kind to them all. Miss Read was a very popular author at one time...the books are slight treasures and a treat to read.
This is a fun read about small town life, centering around country schools.
Easy to get caught up in the story once you get to know the characters. Relaxing and charming!
After the Thrush Green series, I love anything written by Miss Read. All her books are gentle and heart-warming stories of life in several English villages.
If you enjoy the Mitford Series by Jan Karon, you will enjoy this book.
thoroughly enjoyed reading 3 of her books. All the I read village characters and happenings are funny and poignant. The 3 books included in my copy included: Village School, Village Diary, and Storm in the Village.
