From an unusual weight-losing recipe found in an old notebook - and used with alarming consequences - to the queen of copy-cats who drives her neighbour mad with anger, Over The Gate is a hugely entertaining collection of tales from Fairacre, past and present.
Miss Read, the school mistress, continues to attract odd stories and village folklore, and retells them with her characteristic compassion and humour.
