“If you’ve ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you’ll relish a visit to Fairacre.” —Jan Karon
Miss Read once again transports readers to the picturesque English village of Fairacre with her Village Diary. Having received a beautiful diary for Christmas, she proceeds to set down a year’s worth of observations and experiences as the village school’s headmistress. And what a year it is!
As the villagers prepare for their country pageant, Fairacre welcomes many newcomers, such as the headstrong Amy; the earnest new infants’ teacher, Miss Jackson; and Mr. Mawne—whom the villagers would like to see the reluctant Miss Read marry . . .
“Miss Read's Books . . . have deservedly received the highest praise from both English and American reviewers.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Miss Read reminds us of what is really important. And if we can’t live in her world, it’s certainly a comforting place to visit.” —USA Today
