A new book received with light edgewear. This edition, one of the Furrowed Middlebrow imprints, has an introduction by the Jill Saint, the author's daughter.; Young Anna Lacey has spent most of her life on a farm in Essex. But her first teaching position carries her to an unattractive, newly constructed suburb where she has to adjust to cramped lodgings, a skinflint landlady, overcrowded classrooms, and eccentric colleagues ('a rum lot'). She must also adapt some of her idealistic theories of teaching to the realities of her energetic, exuberant pupils.

Fans of Miss Read's much-loved Thrush Green and Fairacre novels will be delighted with this tale of a young woman's first year of teaching, and perhaps also surprised by its sharp, funny portrayals of the foibles of human nature. Anna experiences some disappointments and uncertainties, but her practicality, determination and sense of humour see her through.; "Miss Read is one of my favourite writers of comfort reading."-This author recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group.Cover matches stock image.
