Summary

‘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.

A good listen on a sunny afternoon in a deck chair remembering your lost childhood, before the kids call they are hungry

Gentle, enjoyable series

What made the experience of listening to Village Diary the most enjoyable?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Village Diary?

I enjoyed all of it.

Have you listened to any of Gwen Watford’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Gwen Watford is an excellent narrator for Miss Read's books, She is by far the best of those I have heard.

Village diary

This is marvellous. The humour, the events, the history. All told in wonderful tones of english diction and great sense of humour. I lived it with her, and when it ended I rushed to buy another one in the series. Fantastic.
