Description
The English village of Fairacre may appear idyllically peaceful to passersby, but when a rumor emerges—that the Fairacre School is to be closed and the children bused to nearby Beech Green—the village is up in arms at once. The schoolmistress, Miss Read, suffers agonizing indecision at the prospect, and her situtation is made worse when her infants' room teacher decides to leave and the short-tempered Mrs. Pringle becomes more contrary than ever. In this book, as in all of her wry chronicles set in the neighboring Cotswold villages of Fairacre and Thrush Green, Miss Read takes readers to a bygone world of charming eccentrics and stalwart characters. When troubles arise they are handled with a combination of manners, a bit of the stiff upper lip, and the occasional good-natured compromise.
