Thrush Green | [Miss Read]

Thrush Green

It's the May Day holiday, and a fair has come to the village of Thrush Green. The residents of Thrush Green all have their own views about the fair. For young Paul, just recovered from an illness, it is a joy to be allowed out to play at the fair; for Ruth, who returned to the soothing tranquility of Thrush Green nursing a broken heart, the fair is a welcome distraction from her own problems. And for Dr Lovell, the fair brings an unexpected new patient.

Publisher's Summary

It's the May Day holiday, and a fair has come to the village of Thrush Green. The residents of Thrush Green all have their own views about the fair. For young Paul, just recovered from an illness, it is a joy to be allowed out to play at the fair; for Ruth, who returned to the soothing tranquility of Thrush Green nursing a broken heart, the fair is a welcome distraction from her own problems. And for Dr Lovell, the fair brings an unexpected new patient.

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.

    "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.

    "Boring"

    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!
