Review by DeltaQueen50
Affairs at Thrush Green by Miss Read (Dora Saint) is another gentle, nostalgic read about a small village in the Cotswolds of England where time seems to stand still. This book covers just about a year in the life of the village, starting with a snowy February and ending on the following Christmas. All the regular characters are back and there are a couple of new additions to the neighbourhood. There is an honesty and joy to this author’s writings whether she is describing the day-to-day life of the residents or the changing seasons and the rural delights to be found in the countryside. Relaxing, a little predictable and with just the right amount of sweetness, these books are perfect comfort reads.
