Then there is Mrs Curdle, the long-standing matriarch of the fair. For her, this year's visit to Thrush Green awakens mixed feelings, and a difficulty she doesn't want to face.

June Barrie reads this unabridged version of the book and is an excellent reader, a thoroughly enjoyable listen. I don't know how the mistake came about but this book is well worth a listen.
"nice read from a great author"
never lets me down, whimsical and interesting .
"A Great Escape"
A shame only the abridged book was available, but I still enjoyed the wonderful escape that Miss Read always gives her readers. Having read the book before I did not find the way it had been abridged too noticeable. I gave it 4 stars only because I would have preferred the full story. I was a lovely book well narrated.
"A mug of hot chocolate"
A changing of the old gard for the new in Thrush Green. As warming as hot chocolate and as beutifuly read as anything on BBC radio by Clare Higgins. Nothing to challenge but much I found to engage.
I gave it a go but found nothing to engage me here. Plenty of other people must like Miss Read though as there is a whole series!
