A copy of the true first US edition with decorated endpapers and green quarter cloth spine, not the more readily available book club edition. Spine tail bumped with a tiny tear, pale yellow page edges have a few faint soil marks. Unclipped dust wrapper edgeworn, spine and lightly soiled white rear panel sunned, a few chips and tears, two skinned areas on spine. ; "One of my favorite "Reads," I have loaned my own two copies time and again to friends that don't know about this soothing, straightforward English writer. In this volume, our school teacher Miss Read takes us back to Fairacre, a lovely downland village, from spring to the end of summer. Miss Read finds practical ways to help young Joseph Coggs and is a marvelously understated friend to Amy. How she deals with Henry Mawne (after all, he is married even if his wife is on an extended visit to Ireland and village tongues will wag when the lonely man stops by) and the bounties of the summer garden (how many baskets of gooseberries can one lone woman top and tail?)...are just two of the gentle complications waiting to be enjoyed. Don't be deceived by the simplicity of language and plot. Miss Read novels were written to last."-Holly H. recommends. This title also reviewed and recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group. Image is actual copy on offer.
