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. .

Here they enjoyed the sea air, the gentle countryside around, new friends, and above all, each other's company. Dorothy, who had been the headmistress, took most of the decisions, but Agnes, who had been in charge of the infants' department, although acquiescent nine times.

This book was alright - after all, it was about Thrush Green. That being said, there wasn't much to the storyline and character development did not progress at all in this book. Two new characters were introduced and we'll see if they reappear in the following books. Missed "updates" on my favorite characters such as Nelly who isn't mentioned at all, and then some who are mentioned and actually written about, nothing much is said or developed with the tiny exception of Winnie Bailey, of whom we get a slight health update. Dorothy and Agnes start out quite well in the book but are reduced to one dimensional characters before too long. Ah well. On to the next book!!

I'm reading the series for the first time and have throughly enjoyed them but this books story just wasn't the same. I agree with previous reviewers in that many characters were omitted. Don't get me wrong, I will continue on to Book 12 but I feel like I could have skipped this one and all would have been fine. I am quite worried about what I will do when I reach the end as I have grown to love all of the people.

I love this series and this one doesn't disappoint! It feels like visiting old friends reading these books.
  • Yndanol
This is a very enjoyable series. If you like a mellow but entertaining read, give these a try!
  • Doktilar
Beautiful book
  • Granirad
Nice book, but a few errors with chronology for the characters. Much shorter than some of the other Thrush Green books.
  • INwhite
This book transports readers to a simpler, easier time.
As wonderful as all her other books. I enjoy all of the books in this series. You can't go wrong.
