Two favorite villagers make a life-changing decision. “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 School at Thrush Green returns readers to the heart of the Cotswolds just as beloved primary school teachers Dorothy Watson and Agnes Fogerty announce their retirement and make plans to leave Thrush Green and buy a new home at Barton-on-Sea. The village people are aflutter with the news, musing about the teachers’ replacements, the fate of the schoolhouse, and an appropriate farewell gift. Further drama unfolds as Dorothy takes up driving and Agnes finds a new friend in a stray cat. As summer turns to fall, the changing seasons reflect the changing face of Thrush Green, where old and new friends settle down and find happiness.
“Once again, Miss Read renders a charming recital of events in Thrush Green, a quaint English village caught in time (most likely teatime).” —Booklist
