Review: I read Miss Reads books many,many years ago, and enjoyed them then. However I am enjoying them even more now. They are set in a very different time, although the way of life then could maybe teach us a bit about how we could live and think today. There is also a lot of humour. I would say to anyone give these lovely books a try.

People in Fairacre simply won't stand for their children being uprooted, and carted away in buses like so many - er, so many--' Animals?' prompted Mr Roberts helpfully.' No, no, not animals,' said Mrs Mawne testily. 'Animals don't go in buses! What I mean is, we won't have it. We'll never let Fairacre school close.' She looked round the table. Her face was red, her eyes bright.' Agreed?' The village of Fairacre is buzzing with rumours of the imminent closure of its two-class school. As fears grow amid mounting conjecture, headmistress Miss Read's future hangs in the balance. And trouble is never far away as village life is further disrupted by tangled matrimonial affairs and a police investigation. The community must rally together to face this new threat.

    Description: After a long winter, summer is a welcome time for Miss Read and her village friends. SUMMER AT FAIRACRE charmingly recounts this bright, bustling season and the problems and possibilities that unfold against the backdrop of roses, skylarks and bees. Joseph Coggs finds a temporary home in the schoolhouse while his mother is in the hospital. Miss Read's friend Amy mysteriously disappears. Perhaps most difficult of all, Mrs Pringle, the grumpy school cleaner, is unable to work because of her 'bad leg'.

    Description: [ Gervase Phinn is] a worthy successor to James Herriott, and every bit as endearing.' - Bestselling author Alan Titchmarsh She was wearing red shoes! With silver heels! Elisabeth Devine causes quite a stir on her arrival in the village. No one can understand why the head of a big inner city school would want to come to sleepy little Barton-in-the-Dale, to a primary with more problems than school dinners. And that's not even counting the challenges the mysterious Elisabeth herself will face: a bitter former head teacher, a grumpy caretaker and a duplicitous chair of governors, to name but a few. Then there's the gossip. After all, a woman who would wear red shoes to an interview is obviously capable of anything. Warm, funny and poignant, Gervase Phinn's first novel creates a fictional world that's as real as can be. It will delight all his fans, and win him many more. Readers are loving THE LITTLE VILLAGE SCHOOL!'A jolly good read.' - 5 STARS' Superb, easy reading.' - 5 STARS'I completely fell in love with all the characters in this book.' - 5 STARS' Will definitely go on to read more of Gervase Phinn's works.' - 5 STARS' Wonderful storytelling, believable characters.' - 5 STARS.
