From dj: "...Continues the tale of Thrush Green families whom we last met in GOSSIP FROM THRUSH GREEN (1982). The hero of this story is the kindly vicar, Charles Henstock, whose home was burned to the ground at the end of the earlier novel. Now he lives in Lulling and has the care of four parishes including Thrush Green. Going to a new church is never easy, even in the best of times; indeed, poor Dr. Henstock encounters some very redoubtable females in Lulling. A full-scale power struggle erupts over the question of kneeling cushions for the Lady Chapel, and other difficulties revolve around the crotchety old sexton Albert Piggott, now assisted by Bob Cooke, who does all the work. Meanwhile a mysterious stranger arrives at the Fuchsia Bush cafe, and its rivalry with the Two Pheasants becomes more acute. One knows, however, that Miss Read will make all come right in the end." "Miss Read writes lovely prose, understated and mischievous, laced with with, humor and wisdom in equal measure."--El Paso Times
