Village Affairs

by Miss Read, John Goodall

Open the gate to Fairacre, America’s favorite English village.

The English village of Fairacre may appear idyllically peaceful to passersby, but those who live among its shady lanes always have problems to untangle. When a terrible rumor emerges — that the Fairacre School is to be closed and the children bused to nearby Beech Green — the village is up in arms at once. The schoolmistress, Miss Read, suffers agonizing indecision at the prospect, and her situation is made worse when her infants’ room teacher decides to leave and the short-tempered Mrs. Pringle becomes more contrary than ever.
