Product Description

The snows of January yield to snowdrops and then daffodils. As the spring unfolds, so does the drama of village life. Dotty Harmer serves up an herbal brew to her neighbor Albert Piggott, who has a soft spot for her despite his crusty facade. Architect Edward Young overhears a rumor that the old people's home he designed may be a bit cramped, and an American stranger arrives in search of family connections. These and other stories are intertwined and capture a bygone era.

Circling the seasons at Thrush Green, Miss Read looks in on a host of characters -- whimsical, eccentric, always keenly observed -- and their daily affairs. By year’s end these stories are satisfyingly interlocked, capturing a bygone era with the charm and humor that give Miss Read her enduring appeal.

Author Bio

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.
