Meet 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.

I love this series but this is the worst digitization I have ever seen. All words containing a double l have the l's replaced with a d, for example will is written wid. Doesn't anyone check this??? Don't buy this volume in this format.

Beware, poor scanning,as usual, will leave you distracted - read the paper edition - Miss Read was the best writer of this genre ever!

A delightful read, although not as good as the Jan Karon Mitford Series.
