There are also other topics of concern: will the Misses Lovelock keep their latest domestic help? Is the young man outside The Fuchsia Bush really an architectural student, as Agnes thinks? And, most importantly, will the two teachers ever find a suitable retirement home at Barton-on-Sea?
Thrush Green is the focus of 14 stories written by English author and BBC screenwriter Miss. Read. The School At Thrush Green is yet another example of Miss. Read’s unique ability to apply her playful sense of humour and love of the great British countryside and mix them up into a lighthearted story that oozes with charm. Her love of all things typically English derived from her childhood, which was largely spent in Kent. Her love of the countryside is evident in the quintessentially English villages she sets her work in, including this tale of Thrush Green, available on CD audiobook.
The school is a focal point in Thrush Green and the village is thrown into turmoil as two of the local teachers make the bold decision to retire. Who will take over as head teacher and will they ever find anyone as kind hearted as Miss Fogerty to teach the younger children? Elsewhere in the village, an architectural student causes eyebrows to rise, a cleaner is desperately needed in one household and of course, the two teachers struggle to find the perfect retirement home.
