Phyllida and Frank have their work cut out for them when they agree to take on the Nativity play - made all the more difficult by an outbreak of chickenpox. The indomitable Ella has lived in Thrush Green for as long as anyone can remember, but lately she has been behaving strangely. Then there are the dreadful Burwells, newcomers to Thrush Green, who cause something of a stir with their 'home improvements'.
For Nelly, owner of The Fuchsia Bush tea shop, Christmas is an especially busy time, with people dropping in for much-needed refreshment, weary from all their Christmas shopping. But then she receives an unexpected letter.

Not the same charm
I don't like to say anything against Miss Read as I love all her books usually but I didn't enjoy this book. I have read all Thrush Green annd Fairacre books and this was not the same standard. The characters seemed to have had a personality change and I even found myself disliking some and the stories didn' t flow well. I especially disliked the Edward / Burwell saga and disliked Paul and Edward more than the Burwells.
They whole book had lost its charm and timeless feel and I will not be re reading it as I do all my other Miss Read's .
