Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by June Barrie

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1962

The chronicles of village life in rural England, filled with truisms and seasonal detail, soothe the listener and recall a quieter, and kinder, time and place. June Barrie has narrated many of these charming books and here pays tribute to the older women of the village with the kindness that the author feels for each one. Her voice is perfect for the gentleness of the narrative. Barrie is as competent with the speaking males as she is with every other aspect of Thrush Green. These books are generous in their understanding of the world and the foibles of mankind. Nothing earth-shattering happens, but everything carries the drama and wisdom of lives led in close society. The listener is transported to Thrush Green. B.H.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
