9780752893570: Summer at Fairacre

After a long winter of red noses and wet mittens, summer is a welcome time for Miss Read and her downland village friends. SUMMER AT FAIRACRE charmingly recounts this bright, bustling season and the problems and possibilities that unfold against the background of roses, skylarks, and bees. Joseph Coggs finds a temporary home in the schoolhouse while his mother is in the hospital. Miss Read's friend Amy mysteriously disappears. Perhaps most difficult of all, Mrs. Pringle, the grumpy school cleaner, is unable to work because the pain in her bad leg flares up. Still, the sounds of children playing and the fragrance of summertime flowers fill the air, as Miss Read shepherds her students and friends through the warm season.

About the Author :

Miss Read is 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. She lives in Berkshire.

From Publishers Weekly :

To say that for those who like this sort of thing this book is definitely the sort of thing they like is generally understood to be damning with faint praise, but in this case it should be understood as an accolade. Miss Read's loving evocation of life in the Cotswold village of Fairacre tells us that it is possible to go home again, even to a place that does not exist at all, and never did. Fairacre is the English village of our collective unconscious, a thoroughly nostalgic creation. Dora Saint, writing under the nom de plume and in the character of "Miss Read," English schoolteacher, has written 40 books about village and country life. Since the 1950s, Summer at Fairacre and its companion volumes (Village School and Village Centenary) have been reissued many times in England. All three are now being published in the U.S. for the first time in trade paperback. In this particular installment, the central drama such as it is revolves around the bad behavior of Miss Pringle, the crotchety school cleaning lady, who quits in a huff and only returns after much to-ing and fro-ing. Miss Read, a gentle soul with a kindly interest in all around her, is the master of the kind of detail that shows place and character in delicate focus, reporting on the behavior of bees and swallows and Tibby, her cat, and, of course, on her neighbors. For those who miss the Waltons, or who can't get enough of Jan Karon, Fairacre is an excellent place to visit. (May 15)Forecast: Houghton Mifflin is hoping to introduce a whole new generation of readers to Miss Read with these reissues. It may be more of a challenge this time around, but there's no underestimating the power of rural English charm.
