‘As I have been given a large and magnificent diary for Christmas... I intend to fill it in as long as my ardour lasts.’ Luckily, Miss Read’s ardour lasts all year, encompassing every aspect of Fairacre life.
Whether embroiled unwillingly in her friend Amy’s marital hiccups, discussing the changing world with Miss Clare or the modern problems of good local education and rural impoverishment with the schools inspector and the doctor, she remains balanced, humorous and wise and never forgets either her most important charge, the mixed bag of children in her school, or the joys of the changing seasons.

Gentle, enjoyable series
Rediscovering old friends in Thrush Green and Fairacre has been very enjoyable. I read all of Miss Read's books many years ago and having them read to me has been very pleasant.
I enjoyed all of it.
Gwen Watford is an excellent narrator for Miss Read's books, She is by far the best of those I have heard.
