The right mix

Once I got into this book I found I didn't want it to end, warm characters, brought to life by Anne's reading. Good mix of factual info about the Ats roles, the training & positions the girls took, combined with real likeable main characters. Favourites May, and Granny Byron, and favourite description - the fairy ring.
It would've been nice to have a sequel.
