Miss Read,

Changes at Fairacre: A Novel
 
 
Even a small English village can’t escape growing pains— “If you’ve ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you’ll relish a visit to Fairacre.” (Jan Karon, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).
 
Times are changing in the charming downland village of Fairacre, and Miss Read isn’t certain it’s all for the best. The new commuter lifestyle has caused a decline in attendance at the local school, and officials are threatening closure. Miss Read worries about the failing health of Dolly Clare. Vegetable gardens have given way to trips to the Caxley markets, and the traditional village fête now includes a prize for best quiche. With her trademark patience and good humor, Miss Read hopes for the best and plans for the worst as the village grows increasingly modern. Despite all the innovations, Fairacre still retains its essential elements: gentle wit, good manners, and the comfort of caring neighbors.
 
“The characters and settings are as familiar and comfortable as old shoes. . . . Read writes with deep affection about what she knows and never succumbs to the temptation of clichés. An occasional visit to Fairacre offers a restful change from the frenetic pace of the contemporary world.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“For the devoted following: a soothing oasis of tidy living for the frazzled reader weary of an untidy world.” —Kirkus Reviews
