Description

Big changes are afoot in a small English village. "If you've ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you'll relish a visit to Fairacre" (Jan Karon, #1 New York Times-bestselling author). Trouble brews in the tiny country village of Fairacre, when it is discovered that Farmer Miller's Hundred Acre Field is slated for real estate development. Alarming rumors are circulating, among them the fear that the village school may close. The endearing schoolmistress Miss Read brings her inimitable blend of affection and clear-sighted candor to this report, in which a young girl finds her first love, an older woman accepts a new role in life, and the impassioned battle to save the village from being engulfed is at the forefront of every villager's mind. "Wise, ironic, kindly, full of atmosphere and characters, rural charm, broad dialects, and the impishness of children." -St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Affectionate, humorous, and gently charming . . . sometimes funny, sometimes touching, always appealing." -The New York Times
