Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

GOSSIP FROM THRUSH GREEN returns readers to the delightful English village, neighbor to Fairacre, for a golden summer. But this sleepy, pristine setting conceals a flurry of activity amongst the villagers. Rumor has it that Mr. Venables is considering retirement just as the village's teacher is about to make an important decision. Molly Curdle prepares for a new baby. The kindly vicar, Charles Henstock, works on his sermon — quite unaware of the disaster that will overtake him. However, there is never any doubt that all will end well in this very English village.

Description:

The pristine setting of Thrush Green conceals a flurry of activity. Mr. Venables is considering retirement just as Miss Watson, the village's teacher, is about to make an important decision and Molly Curdle prepares for a new baby.

About the Author

Miss Read (1913-2012) was the pseudonym of Mrs. Dora Saint, a former schoolteacher beloved for her novels of English rural life, especially those set in the fictional villages of Thrush Green and Fairacre. The first of these, Village School, was published in 1955, and Miss Read continued to write until her retirement in 1996. In the 1998, she was awarded an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire, for her services to literature.
