Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, Thrush Green is normally a peaceful place. But as autumn turns to winter, feelings are running high in the village. Miss Fogerty, a respected teacher at the village school for over thirty years, is troubled by the methods of the new young teacher. Dotty Harmer takes up driving, much to the concern of others, and it isn’t long before she is involved in an accident and a threatening court case. And when the good rector innocently suggests that the neglected church-yard should be tidied up, Thrush Green is outraged.
It seems wherever you look there are difficulties and changes, but as spring arrives, there is renewed hope that all will end well. Read by Gwen Watford.
If you are reading this review because you have never read Miss Read's Thrush Green books then I envy you I wish I had them all ahead of me unread to enjoy afresh. You will be transported to a gentler world by her text,
"The little valley leading to Lulling Woods was shimmered in the spring Sunshine. Somewhere a lark was singing…"
and yet be impressed but the reality of her characters and they way they battle with their difficulties in this story. Enjoy! Oh and Gwen Watford is the perfect narrator.
