Enter the world of Thrush Green, an English Cotswold village, where not much--and a great deal--happens. Miss Read is justly famous for her wise Thrush Green and Fairacre books, based on her own experiences as a rural English schoolteacher. Gwen Watford's voice is sharper than this reviewer--a longtime Miss Read addict--associates with the gentle stories. Although her reading is clear and well paced, Watford sometimes sounds like the local "lady of the manor" who is not altogether fond of the villagers. It's not a bad reading, just not an affectionate one. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
