Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you’ve ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you’ll relish a visit to Thrush Green.” Jan Karon, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“The more turbulent the real world, the more charming we may find the stability of Miss Read’s tiny fictional world.” Los Angeles Times
“The latest Thrush Green novel by the prolific, pseudonymous ‘Miss Read’ will undoubtedly satisfy those who enjoy simple and undemanding narratives…Miss Read’s worldwide popularity in translation is understandable in view of the clarity of her prose. Beneath the deceptive simplicity, however, there is arch humor and perceptive character analysis.” Publishers Weekly
“Once again, Miss Read renders a charming recital of events in Thrush Green, a quaint English village caught in time (most likely teatime).” Booklist
