Over the Gate : The fourth novel in the Fairacre series Paperback / softback

Part of the Fairacre series

Paperback / softback


Another entertaining slice of Fairacre life from the bestselling author of VILLAGE SCHOOL. 'The story of the village goes back a long, long time, and it still goes on.

I have listened to my neighbours' accounts of tales long ago, and with what unfailing curiosity I observe the happenings of today!'From an unusual weight-loss recipe found in an old notebook - and used with alarming consequences - to the queen of copycats who drives her neighbour mad with anger, OVER THE GATE is a hugely entertaining collection of tales from Fairacre, past and present. Miss Read, the schoolmistress, continues to attract odd stories and village folklore, and retells them with her characteristic compassion and humour.
