Storm in the Village

2006 edition. Illustrated by J S Goodall. Cover illustration by Sophie Mortimer

Rubbing to edes and corners bumped.  Spine and covers creased. 

Fairacre and the neighbouring village of Beech Green are under siege by planners who want to build a new estate on Harold Miller's Hundred Acre Field, and the inhabitants are vocally divided on the subject.  As the schoolmistress, Miss Read is inevitably involved - but she also has more personal problems to deal with.

Her junior Miss Jackson's unwise passion for a very unsuitable man, the niceties of defining categories for the flower show, and the ever-leaking and finally colleapsing skylight in the schoolhouse are just a few of the problems she deal with in the course of another enchanting year in the comp-any of one of the most observant recorders of a rural community.
