I lead a rather hectic life in a hectic city, but always try to find a little time to read. I like books that give me insight into another way of life, with vivid imagery, interesting characters and great writing. All of Miss Read's books have that, but this one in particular explores what it is like to make a life-altering decision, the increasing burdens of the work day world and the generous spirit of small communities. This book is all that, as well as witty and thought-provoking. All of this in a completely vulgarity-free package. If you've read other Miss Read books, you'll love this too...and if you haven't, this book will inspire you to read her others.
