This volume introduces Thrush Green, the neighboring village to Fairacre: its blackthorn bushes, thatch-roofed cottages, enchanting landscape, and jumble sales.

Miss Read is a great book for people who like village novels. If you are a fan of either Jan Karon or DE Stevenson, this is the series for you. You can read them out of order, but it is nicer to read them in order. Miss Read has two series - Thrush Green and the Miss Read series about a village school teacher. I love these and reread them on stressful days.
This is a very enjoyable series. If you like a mellow but entertaining read, give these a try!
Lots of change but everyone settles down in the end in a most satisfactory manner! Most enjoyable visit to the English Cotswolds. Just sad this series is winding down now ????...just 4 more books to go...????
All the "ThrushGreen" series are good reads. They are a gentle and humorous look at people in a small village in the Cotswald section of England.
I was pleased that the book was a former library book (which means better binding) and still had the cover on it.
I've read them all and occasionally will read them again.
Love it
All these people who live at Thrush Green begin to seem like real people, and sometimes become predicable until Miss Read throws in something to change the story - which is always delightful.
My wife loves this series and wants to read every one. We have now acquired almost all of them except two.
If you want to escape your ordinary life for a few hours, Miss Read's books are the ones to escape into. The characters are unusual and have charm. Reading one of Miss Read's book is like sitting in an overstuffed chair by the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa. Highly recommended!!!
