Saint also produced some books for children, as well as Miss Read's Country Cooking (1969). Miss Read was an uncomplicated person. She wrote wonderfully about the things she held dear; good friendships, the countryside through the seasons and a bit of harmless tittle-tattle on the green. She did not shirk from speaking about the downs as well as the ups of village life. One of her Thrush Green characters, Ella Bembridge, "was a great admirer of Anthony Trollope, partly because she was impressed with the industry and perseverance of the man". Ella also prized loyalty and doggedness: these were all qualities displayed by the writer.

Berkohi
Quiet, stable, gentle, relaxing, hopeful.... it does one good to visit Thrush Green and Fairacre. A slower, gentler time...it restores. Of course there were problems and serious ones then as always but it renews us to leave these behind us for a while and focus on the goodness of life.
Maridor
What a lovely book about lovely people in a charming town. The characters are well developed and you find yourself wanting the best for them -- even the grumpy ones. You won't regret the time you spend on Thrush Green.

Up until a few weeks prior to buying this book, I was unfamiliar with the works of Miss Read. Since then I've managed to collect not just this particular volume in the Thrush Green series, but also the ones prior and those that follow, with 2 exceptions, which I shall soon rectify as I would like the entire series. This is definately a prime example of a light read. Miss Read's descriptions of her fictional English village, built within picturesque surroundings (notice her flowing narrative concerning the woodlands and the village inhabitants gardens; she definatley knows her horticulture!), are indeed idealic, setting-wise. And of course, the village is filled with typical but tolerable, lovable, eccentrics. Looking to escape into the English countryside, even for just a chapter or two before bed or on a rainy afternoon, this is the perfect place to start.

The characters are loveable and endearing. If you like uncomplicated stories set in a simpler, slower-paced time and place, Miss Read's book News from Thrush Green will not disappoint you.

I first read Miss Read 30 years ago & had forgotten her, so I was happy to see a couple of her books well priced at Early Bird books & snapped them up. She writes such pleasant stories.

This warm-hearted depiction of life in an English village will be savored by Anglophiles. I ‘m looking forward to my next visit.

An old friend that I am enjoying again.
As Miss Green goes, a bit of a disappointment but still faithful to the spirit of other M.G. books.
