Format: Paperback
I love all of the Miss Read books; they are witty, and filled with infectious, gentle humor, and periodically, a nice verbal dart to burst a pompous bubble. Much as I love the Fairacre and Thrush Green series, it is always difficult when a beloved character, like Dolly Clare, dies. Once you are drawn into Miss Read's universe, you never want to leave. It's such a warm, comforting, soothing place; you feel as though you know every character and their quirks after just a few books. So you feel as though Miss Clare is a much loved old friend. It's difficult not to admire and love her; the British Empire must have been built on the sturdy backs and common sense, and faith of millions of men and women like Miss Clare. She never makes a big splash in the way of the world, but she influenced, and was loved by all of her pupils and neighbors. She had rare common sense, and humor, allied to a keen intelligence, and she had courage. These books are a journey into a lost world. When I was a child, there were still neighborhoods and people like Miss Clare, and her friends. Those have all but vanished, but you can revisit them over again, in Miss Read's lovely books. Prepare to shed a few tears, or a lot of tears, over the passing of gentle Dolly Clare, but rejoice with Miss Read that Dolly has left her the cottage and it's contents, and secured her future. I have every book in the Fairacre and Thrush Green series, and I find myself rereading them every year, or every other year. No matter how many times you have read them, you can't escape their gentle spell, and kinder worlds. Despite the fact that Dora Saint sometimes switches facts in the same or subsequent books, you just smile, because it's something we all do, from time to time.Read more ›

When I can pick up a book and instantly be removed from the real world to a world of sweeter times I know I will read the book more than once!

For me Miss Read can do no wrong. Her books make wonderful reading and the more of them you read the more you get involved with the various characters whether they be the ones from Thrush Green or the ones from Fairacre. If you have never read a book by this author I urge you to do so and, whilst all the books stand on their own, I would suggest that you start with her first ones which set the scenes and characters for both villages.

Any of the books by Miss Read (Dora Saint) are balm for life in today's busy world. If you live, as I do, in a large city where you barely know your neighbors. If you miss the awareness and beauty of nature that used to have such impact on daily life...Miss Read's books are for you. They are warm, cozy, funny, sometimes sarcastic, and always filled with life!

Discovered Miss Read's books several years back and have now read almost every one of them. I love her books. I always find them interesting and they are wonderful books to relax with before bedtime when I need to unwind and shake off the stress of the day. I enjoy her details of the changing seasons in the English countryside.

Times change, people move out of a country village in search of something else, and the village school looks like losing its heart - its pupils. However, Miss Read's move into Dolly's cottage brings a new kind of happiness to Miss Read, and joy to its readers. Fabulous book, with all the comfortable old characters. These books are as inviting and enveloping as a comfy old sofa and a good fire in the hearth.
