Miss. Read is the pen name chosen by the author of sweet country life, Dora Jessie Saint. Dora Jessie Saint grew up in the English county of Kent. She was a studious child who later chose to become a teacher following in her father’s footsteps. At one point she experienced working as a teacher in West London and later moved out into the countryside. This switch from city to country life can be seen in reverse in her story 'Fresh From The Country'.
Taking a break from her country village focussed books Dora Jessie Saint explores the world of a girl’s life journey from country to city. It possibly reflects parts of her own life as she narrates the story of a young teacher dealing with her new position in a London school. The lifestyle is so dramatically different from her previous village life and Anna Lacey must meander through the engulfing city living and working conditions to make her fit in and feel at home.
