The school's setting was sheltered and peaceful. In those days rough turf surrounded the building, with a stone-flagged path leading to the road, and another to the school house. e green was white with daisies, and the bigger girls showed the younger ones how to make daisy chains with a pin, or a sharp thumb nail. Later, plantains sent up their tough stalks and knobbly heads, and the children used to pluck these and play 'knocking heads off' with skill and energy.

Are you tired of 'reality' tv? Tired of the 'so you want to be a star' shows on commercial tv? Tired of the same repeats on public tv? The recent costume dramas are good, just not repeating every week..... Or the endless pitch for donations 'for YOUR public tv station' by paid actors who don't even mention "Your Public TV" call letters... The endless 'talent' shows where people 'dance' or 'sing' or do what ever for a shot a fame? Or the bimbos who dine, wine, and create drama and have the audacity to call themselves 'housewives'? Do yourself a favor. Turn it all off. Pick up a book. Pour yourself a cup of tea, or lemonade, or whatever and settle down every day for a few chapters of Miss Read. These are not 'cutesy' stories, there is real drama and intrigue, tragedy and loss, happiness and scandal in the lives of Miss Read's villages. The author lived almost 90 years and breathed life into a fictitious English community for over 40 years. The 30 plus titles will keep even the most voracious reader content for quite some time.

Oh, this was the sweetest story! I wish I hadn't loaned my little book to my sister; I may never get it back. Even though it is nostalgic, still the reality of how hard it was for people to meet basic needs shows through. I REALLY enjoyed it.

The book came in the condition as specified in description. The story was well written and appealing, with believable characterizations.

Brought tears to my eyes as I had recently finished my ancestry.com family research. I could just see my Nana and her brothers and sisters and parents daily lives as they might have been in their time. I read it through twice. This is a keeper to be read again! Miss Read just has such a special way of writing! Another excellent one by Miss Read is "Time Remembered" that also reminded me of Nana and what her daily life would have been like in her time, and it is about true events in Miss Read's personal family history.

Miss Read brings us into this warm, simple world and just as we get comfortable death, birth, war and heartbreak makes us see this as a novel that inspires strength and not just escape. As the world encroaches in after WWII and the atomic age lands ungracefully on the small english villages Dolly Clare teaches her students "...to face whatever comes with calmness and courage, to love their families and friends with unswerving loyalty.." This book soothes the soul in this day and age of Jerry Springer.

This sweet story is exactly what I expected from Miss Read! I have read a number of her books and have completely enjoyed each one! It is a sweet tale of a life long friendship, taking them through tragedy and victory! I would highly encourage one to read it as well as her other books!

I have read eighteen of Miss Reads books and will continue on until I have read all of them. This and all her stories take you to simplier times and places you wish you could go to, with characters you wish you could meet. I highly recommend this and all of Miss Read's books to anyone who enjoys a good story which is as relaxing as a cup of tea by a fire in a cozy chair. A+
