Summary

A new excitement comes to the village of Thrush Green when Harold Shoosmith, a distinguished bachelor who has chosen the village for his retirement, takes the corner house on the green. Harold is soon enmeshed in village politics and becomes involved in the private lives of his neighbours as well. His presence has a dramatic effect on Dimity Dean and Ella Bembridge and is the cause of a serious misunderstanding between the two friends.

And the village’s widowed rector finds in Harold a new friend who gives him the courage to end his lonely state.

Read by Gwen Watford.

Very enjoyable

Miss Read stories always deliver a coziness that never let you down. The characters are so lovable and her descriptive word sets the scene for tranquil village life, which is a joy to be immersed in. Almost Postman Pat for grown ups, meant in the most kind and respectful way.

Winter in Thrush Green, perfect listening

I love Miss Read and have done since I read my mother’s copies. This winter has seen snow and cold rain, so evenings by the fire, listening to June Barrie narrate have been blissful.
