Thrush Green : The classic nostalgic novel set in 1950s Cotswolds Paperback / softback

Part of the Thrush Green series

Paperback / softback


The first novel in the bestselling Thrush Green series. It's the May Day holiday, and a fair has come to the village of Thrush Green. The residents of Thrush Green all have their own views about the fair.

For young Paul, just recovered from an illness, it is a joy to be allowed out to play at the fair; for Ruth, who returned to the soothing tranquillity of Thrush Green nursing a broken heart, the fair is a welcome distraction from her own problems. And for Dr Lovell, the fair brings an unexpected new patient.

Then there is Mrs Curdle, the long-standing matriarch of the fair.

For her, this year's visit to Thrush Green awakens mixed feelings, and a difficulty she doesn't want to face... Full of Miss Read's inimitable charm and humour, THRUSH GREEN is a wonderful introduction to this bestselling series.
