A weight-losing recipe sends a portly Victorian housemaid literally sky-high. Mrs Next-Door, the queen of copycats, drives her patient neighbour mad with rage; the tragic tale of the ghost of Fairacre; the touch-and-go romance of Elsie Parker.
In Over the Gate, Miss Read, the village schoolmistress, continues to remember odd incidents and excellent stories and to retell them with characteristic grace and compassion.

I really want to buy more books but too many US ones I love UK narrators. Can you get some more Eleanor Bron, Gwen Watford, Jenny Agutter?
This charming and entertaining tale is so heartwarming. In the lovely tones of a clear English accent, the narrator takes us to the heart of English life in a village and all the characters are there with glimpses into their histories. Wonderful. I am buying the whole set of these books.
