Description
Discover these "novels about the gentle rhythms of English village life," as a community bands together to save their beloved local church ( The New York Times ). The first day of October brought an unheralded and violent storm, which whipped through the quiet English village of Fairacre, blowing down trees and telephone poles--and, worst of all, damaging the roof of St. Patrick's church. The inhabitants of tiny Fairacre can't imagine how they'll be able to afford the repairs, until Mr. Willet suggests a fundraising festival. Preparations for a food sale, concert, school play, and gigantic Christmas bazaar are soon made--but will they be enough? With her customary humor and grace, Miss Read recounts a story of catastrophe and courage. "If you've ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you'll relish a visit to Fairacre." --Jan Karon "Miss Read reminds us of what is really important. And if we can't live in her world, it's certainly a comforting place to visit." -- USA Today
