Miss Read (1913-2012) was the pseudonym of Mrs. Dora Saint, a former schoolteacher beloved for her novels of English rural life, especially those set in the fictional villages of Thrush Green and Fairacre. The first of these, Village School, was published in 1955, and Miss Read continued to write until her retirement in 1996. In the 1998, she was awarded an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire, for her services to literature.From AudioFile:
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-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
