Miss Read brings us another work about the daily activities of the inhabitants of Thrush Green, a cozy town in rural England. Gwen Watford, whose lyrical voice holds an appropriate English tone, is soft spoken but firm in her delivery. The story focuses primarily on Dorothy Watson and Agnes Fogerty, teachers who have announced they will retire at the end of the school year. Amid the loving gossip and speculation of the community, they look for a new house, learn how to drive a car, and add an abandoned tabby cat to their household. Watford's delightful portrayal of characters enhances this enjoyable journey to the country. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
