A statue of Thrush Green’s famous son Nathaniel Patten has graced the village green for years. However, this book moves more slowly than most of the volumes in the series. It's of interest to me because I already know the characters and the history of the village and I think it would be of interest to most lovers of the series.
Celebrations at Thrush Green book. Miss Read's 36th novel takes readers back to the village of Thrush Green, where special plans and celebrations are being made for the village school's 100th anniversary celebration. And although plans become complicated, events culminate in a very special celebration.
A major, double celebration is planned in the Cotswold village of Thrush Green: the village school is in its centenary year; and exactly a hundred years ago, one of the village's most notable residents founded a mission school in Africa. But the preparations are beset with problems - Winnie Bailey's health is not what it was; the new headmaster doesn't appear to be entirely right for the job; and there are mixed reactions to the fundraising appeal for the mission school.
Miss Read is justly famous for her wise Thrush Green and Fairacre books, based on her own experiences as a rural English schoolteacher. Although her reading is clear and well paced, Watford sometimes sounds like the local "lady of the manor" who is not altogether fond of the villagers. It's not a bad reading, just not an affectionate one. .
