Miss Read's delightful chronicles of life in Thrush Green continue with RETURN TO THRUSH GREEN. It's spring again in the village, and with the change of the seasons comes change in the lives of many villagers. The Young family's tranquility is disrupted by the sudden arrival of Joan's father, while Molly and Ben Curdle consider putting an end to their wandering days in order to finally settle down. Even the reappearance of Sexton Albert Piggot -- one of Thrush Green's more malevolent sorts -- cannot dim the happiness that inevitably prevails at Thrush Green.… (more)

Visiting the Village of Thrush Green again. Much has happened and clearly there are book in between this one and the one entitled simply "Thrush Green". Still, it's not hard to catch up and it's always lovely to visit old friends and make new ones. ( )

Dora Saint who published under the name of Miss Read wrote many nostalgic books about British country life and rural villages. In her books she paints wonderful pictures of thatched cottages, village greens and well tended gardens. In Return to Thrush Green, she bring her readers back to the small village called Thrush Green and updates us on the comings and goings of the inhabitants.

This is a world where everyone knows everyone’s business and has an opinion whether they are the local vicar or the neighbourhood busybody. The drama usually circles around village affairs from how to tidy up the local cemetery to raising money for repairs to the village school. There is a timelessness abut her books, and although they don’t entirely ignore modern times, they seem to exist in a vacuum all their own.

Return to Thrush Green is a simple, heart-felt, comfort read that was gratefully picked up during the hustle and bustle of this holiday season. ( )
