    1. Miss Read books are lovely stories about simple people living in a simpler time I especially love the Fairacre series as they revolve around the village school teacher and the children But all of her books are quiet and sweet Some people say nothing happens in them, and that s true if you always have to have big events in your novels These books are episodic in nature which makes sense as the first one was written like the teacher s diary Miss Read is also the teacher s name Anyway, in this boo [...]


    2. Have been reading and re reading a few of these over the weekend I have to be in the mood for them but when I am in the right place I love them So relaxing and easy, that time passes and what was to be a 10 minute sit down with a book soon becomes an hour.I love the sense of village life from the past slowly changing but not quite at the pace you get in towns and cities I really enjoy the portraits of her characters that don t change much on the surface but then suddenly come out with something [...]


    3. This is an especially good one of a wonderful series Will they or won t they close Fairacre Village School This question hangs over the whole book, with many side diversions ranging from international embezzeling to hurricane torn devastation For Fairacre, it s a pretty wild ride At the center, as always, is witty, wry, but basically unflappable Miss Read, steering a steady course through the roll of the seasons.Miss Read books in all their settings, but the Fairacre ones are the best of all are [...]


    4. Some of the changes involving changes over time in how things were done such as when there was actually no running water or indoor toilets The biggest change of all is one of the main characters death peaceful, fortunately.There s another really, really bad storm There are continuing worries about whether or not the school will close down Miss Read moves We find out Mrs Pringle is against reading and, as usual, Minnie Pringle fouls up Sort of a sad volume.


    5. Es war mein erstes Miss Read Buch, und ich glaube, auch mein letztes Es liegt nicht daran, dass nichts Aufregendes passiert Mir ist es einfach zu beschaulich, zu einseitig Miss Read, eine Grundschullehrerin auf dem Lande, erbt ein Haus und zieht um Neben diesem Umzug beschreibt sie das Leben ihr eigenes wie auch das in ihrer Umgebung Alles wirkt wie mit einem Weichzeichner wiedergegeben Friede, Freude, Eierkuchen Die Menschen sind alle liebevoll und freundlich zueinander und die einzige m rrisch [...]


    6. I like to think of Fairacre as sort of a British Lake Wobegon a place where things don t really change.But change is coming to Fairacre, like it or not First there s the death of Dolly Clair and Miss Read s move to Dolly s old home None too soon as it turns out, because a storm damages Miss Read s old home by the school.The demographics of Fairacre are changing, too There are far fewer children enrolled in Fairacre school and there is an overriding fear amongst the townfolk that the school may c [...]


    7. For some reason, I found it difficult to get into this particular installment of the Fairacre series It could be because I have been distracted by other books, but it could also be because the book deals with the difficult theme of changes I don t want to see changes in Fairacre I want it to always be a place of peace and contentment I think with my life always being in flux and changing, and with recent events in the world at large, it was difficult for me to read this book I am going to take a [...]


    8. I have read almost all Miss Read s books about a country teacher in an English Village She has a gentle sense of humor and there is a lot of local color in these books It is not a book for people who like action, as there is almost no action at all These books are like comfort food, you can read it and take a breath and slow your life down to the pace of an English country village about 50 years ago.


    9. Yes, another delightful Miss Read book This one has of the same, only a little bit extra Don t start with this, of course, as it s nearly the end of the series There are some heart wrenching bits here, and as ever, it s worth the time to read.


    10. What fun Very pleasant after the heavier reads of late Just enough of life s events to keep it interesting and the author gives wonderful profiles of the participants A breath of fresh air








    11. Great readExcellent story Very gentle and we ll observed storyline with some twists and underlying themes of life that chive it a timeless quality.
