Miss Read's books are like comfort food for the soul. The stories are wholesome, familiar and untroubling. In this story Miss Read leaves her job as schoolmistress of Fairacre School and settles down to retired life. She receives advice, volunteer work, writing assignments and the opportunity to be a marriage counselor. Sian Phillips, the distinguished actress, reads the story in a thoroughly professional, cultured manner. Hers is a solid, determined Miss Read and not a frail old lady who simply rests and roams about her gardens. For those seeking to return in spirit to a simpler place, this story about retirement in a Cotswold village is just the thing. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
