This final Thrush Green omnibus contains the last two books in that series, CELEBRATIONS AT THRUSH GREEN and THE YEAR AT THRUSH GREEN. Whilst the village has seen many changes over the years, some events go on and on. Young children start their education at the village school which is about to celebrate the centenary of its opening; gossip flutters through the air like confetti, and friends help each other out in trouble. Miss Read perfectly observes the daily round of English country life, and her thousands of fans - although sad that the Thrush Green story has ended - will know for sure that life will never really change in Thrush Green.

Miss Read's first book, VILLAGE SCHOOL, was published in 1955 and her last, A PEACEFUL RETIREMENT, was published forty years later. Her forty or so books were primarily novels about Thrush Green and Fairacre, but she also wrote a cookery book and two volumes of childhood autobiography. She and her husband live near Hungerford in Berkshire.
