When a fire destroys the ugly rectory, there is much discussion among the Thrush Green townsfolk about what will become of the vacant site, now that the previous residents (the village rector and his wife) have been transferred to another village.

Would love to see more of Miss Read's books read by Gwen Watford on Audible.

Mrs. Pringle, the lugubrious school cleaner, has always been a favorite character in the Fairacre series. Here, through the eyes and anecdotes of the schoolmistress Miss Read, and others, we trace Maud Pringle's life. They include childhood visits to the village from her Caxley home, through her working days before her marriage to Fred Pringle, and on to her long association with Fairacre School. We meet again many old friends as they cross Mrs. Pringle's path....

Just wonderful. I would love to hear more from the Fairacre series. The other books are equally as charming, and they would be lovely to hear from this narrator.
