Publisher's Summary

Change occurs everywhere, even in the small fictional community of Thrush Green in the British Cotswolds. Dorothy Watson and Agnes Fogerty have taught at the school for as long as anyone can remember, but now they're thinking and talking about retirement. It won't be an easy adjustment for them, or the village residents. Whom can they find that can possibly fill the women's shoes?

Meanwhile, the town wonders if the Lovelock sisters will keep their domestic help. And is that young man really an architectural student, as Agnes thinks? Will Dorothy and Agnes ever find a suitable retirement home, and if the school is sold, what will happen to it?

A thoroughly engaging, warmhearted, small-town tale, certain to appeal to the millions of fans of Jan Karon's bestselling Mitford series.

Finally! More Miss Read books from Audible

Another lovely Miss Read book, this one about the delightful schoolmistresses. You cannot go wrong with Miss Read's tales of the Cotswold village, Thrush Green. These books always put me in a good mood, and Gwen Watford's narration is pitch-perfect as always. A great use of a credit. You won't regret this one. I often start Miss Read's books over just after finishing, and this one was no exception. Starts out strong and continues from strength to strength.
