Publisher's Summary

A weight-losing recipe sends a portly Victorian housemaid literally sky-high. Mrs Next-Door, the queen of copycats, drives her patient neighbour mad with rage; the tragic tale of the ghost of Fairacre; the touch-and-go romance of Elsie Parker.
In Over the Gate, Miss Read, the village schoolmistress, continues to remember odd incidents and excellent stories and to retell them with characteristic grace and compassion.

Narrator sublime!

Gwen Watford is THE voice of Miss Read. No other narrator can match her. Liquid honey voice oozing sympathetic understanding of human frailty in the tale of the daily toil of a dedicated teacher, observing humanity with her gentle, wry humour perfectly paced and pitched for maximum enjoyment. Wonderful!
