Charles Henstock, vicar of Thrush Green is living in his new vicarage after the old one burned down. In place of the old vicarage, eight retirement homes are being built for those villagers most in need. But how to choose who will live there? How will they get on together? And how will they accommodate all the pets? The spring has brought a new crop of dilemmas, but Dr. Henstock and the villagers are determined to make the old people feel at home in Thrush Green.

Listening to this book is rather like sharing a pot of tea as Gwen Watford tells about the daily comings and goings of this English village. This tale is narrated with affection for the characters and a charming and quaint style of life that few listeners will have enjoyed. Timely issues related to providing adequate care and housing for aging residents and the adjustments required for relocation into elder housing are dealt with in the context of the story and its characters. Watford keeps the story moving and lively. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
