Read by Gwen Watford.
Also available in MP3, Farther Afield is part of Miss. Read’s Fairacre novels of which she wrote a total of 20 throughout her long and well established career. Miss Read is the pen name for Dora Jessie Saint who pseudonym derives from her mother’s maiden name. The beautiful English countryside is the central setting for most of her books and Farther Afield is somewhat unusual in that part of the book is set in Crete.
The summer holidays are upon two friends but as Amy and Miss Read get ready to celebrate the joys of the warm weather, Miss read breaks her arm in a nasty fall. Her old friend Amy takes her to the holiday island of Crete to recover and here the friends enjoy a break from Fairacre. They reminisce about old times and ponder their lives by chatting their days away about marriage, single life and generally enjoying a change of scenery. Upon their return to Fairacre, they soon find themselves filled with a whole new lease of life! But is life in Fairacre exactly what they thought it was or will the break show them a new side to the quaint English village?
