    1. Arriving in Utah with 3 books on my Nook, I promptly dropped it while in the midst of grandmother chores The poor Bronte sisters faces bled into the background Although I have precious little reading time here as I supervise 3 boys ages 3 and under, I was desperate for a book Being somewhat a Luddite, I nevertheless was sure I could figure out how to read a book from my phone Sure enough I conquered technology and what did I turn to in my hour of need Thrush Green, of course This volume was deli [...]


    2. I found the Kit Armitage storyline to be confusing at best Miss Read didn t seem certain how old she wanted him to be he was said to be Dotty s contemporary, but the plotline was appropriate for a much younger man The other plots are wonderful as usual, but the Connie Kit Violet storyline required much mental gymnastics.


    3. Forget Virgin River I want to move to Thrush Green No one is perfect People are fat and thin, kind and cranky and don t jump into bed at the drop of a hat Now, if I could only find the place


    4. Here I go again, wanting to do Miss Read s book justice, but the same trite descriptions keep coming to my mind For instance, you ll laugh and cry or enchanting or characters are like old friends Every book I ve read in the Thrush Green series, I have really loved They are not all sweetness and light, however There are tragedies, not so savory characters, heartache As a matter of fact, this particular book SPOILER ALERT had one of the three elderly Lovelock sisters absolutely have her heart crus [...]


    5. An Easy ReadAlways pleasant reading, with above waist only characters awash with cups of tea While it makes village life seem idyllic, the reality was not quite so rosy But so far this is kept hidden behind the honeysuckle and hedgerows.



    6. Two years after the rectory burned down, Charles Henstock is settling into his new role with 4 parishes There are some hiccups along the way and he wonders if he can live up to the reputation of his predecessor Dotty Harmer s niece Connie has moved into Dotty s cottage to help out Meanwhile, Albert Piggot receives a shock and Percy Hodge has marital troubles Kit Armitage, long absent from Thrush Green, returns to the place of his youth to search for a retirement home Perhaps he ll take one of th [...]


    7. In Affairs at Thrush Green, Miss Read continues the fortunes of the Thrush Green families whom we last met in Gossip from Thrush Green Here we follow the kindly vicar, Charles Henstock, to neighboring Lulling, after his home burned to the ground at the end of the earlier novel Going to a new church is never easy, even in the best of times indeed, poor Dr Henstock encounters some very redoubtable females in Lulling A full scale power struggle erupts oer the question of kneeling cushions for the L [...]


    8. I m going to do a combined review for all the remaining Thrush Green books with the exception of Christmas because although they are all excellent, they are also all basically the same, in the way that episodes of The Archers are all the same So, still worth reading but hard to differentiate one book from another The attraction comes from seeing the seasons ebb and flow, and picking up the stories of the characters There are changes characters die, babies are born, houses are built, newcomers ar [...]


    9. The Thrush Green series is the sort that makes great bedtime reading just enough plot to keep you interested, but nothing so thrilling that it ll up your blood pressure, or so suspenseful as to prevent you from putting the book down when it s time to shut your eyes The series chronicles the day to day life of a set of interesting folk in a tiny village in the Cotswold Hills In Affairs at Thrush Green, the plot centers around the vicar, who has recently re married I won t tell you to whom, in cas [...]


    10. As she follows the lives of the Thrust Green inhabitants, Miss Read reminds us that even in the quaintest, quietest of villages, life can be full of excitement The rector s battle with several stubborn and selfish parish women the marital problems experienced by Albert Piggott, whose wife has recently returned, and Percy Hodge, who can t seem to find satisfaction with his own new wife the blossoming romance between Dotty s niece and a newcomer to the village and many other small and large upheav [...]


    11. This was an ok book I thought it was somewhat stereotypically British light fiction It actually took me a long time to read as I kept it in my car and read it during my lunch break I could easily see it as a BBC half hour weekly television show One of the oddest things about it were the illustrations They looked like they were done 60 years ago It took me a while to figure out that the book was contemporary It did make sense then Ok light reading.


    12. This is my first Miss Read book It s like sitting at the window, looking out at everything that s going on in the village The book was first published in 1983, and I think even then it would ve been considered quaint.It s a gentle story of the lives of the villagers Not much plot, but you get to know the people pretty well apparently you know them much better if you ve read the first 6 books in the series


    13. I always love reading the Thrush Green books While there isn t much in way of plot, they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside I find them to be a balm to my soul I try to read only one or two at the most per year because I know I ll be so sad when I ve finished reading the series, but then I ll just have to start the Fairacre series.


    14. I have reviewed these Miss Read books often enough now that I don t feel the need for a lot of words They are sweet and true and beautifully written I cannot say enough good things about this series which I discovered quite by accident, intrigued by the author s name They are like Agatha Christie s without the murders Loved this book, loved it, loved it.


    15. I didn t begin with the first book in the series and was overwhelmed with the numerous characters On that note, it took some time to get into the story of this quaint and loveable village But as I turned the last page, having made it through to the book s end, I looked forward to my next Miss Read tale.


    16. The first Miss Read book I ve ever read, though I ve recommended them before to those who like gentle reads It s like following a full year, from winter to winter, of the life and loves of ordinary people in a rural parish Actually rather pleasant, although it would be helped by having an overall theme to develop.









    17. Affairs as in Happenings in people s lives not as in love affairs, just so you know This is Miss Read after all



    18. I love all Miss Read books I ve learned a lot about English villages, English traditions and village school systems.


    19. I ve tried Miss Read before, but this was the first time I ve enjoyed her so Maybe now I can attempt some of the others.


    20. Another good story from thrush green, I would love to live in this village where everyone knows everyone and to sit and talk to them all.


    21. A wonderful British cottage series that centers around the small quiet village and the new vicar adjusting to the quirky parish members.
