Description
"For those who miss the Waltons, or who can't get enough of Jan Karon, Fairacre is an excellent place to visit" (Publishers Weekly).

After a long winter of red noses and wet mittens, summer is a welcome time for Miss Read and her downland village friends. Summer at Fairacre charmingly recounts this bright, bustling season and the problems and possibilities that unfold against the background of roses, skylarks, and bees. Joseph Coggs finds a temporary home in the schoolhouse while his mother is in the hospital. Miss Read's friend Amy mysteriously disappears. Perhaps most difficult of all, Mrs. Pringle, the grumpy school cleaner, is unable to work because the pain in her bad leg flares up. Still, the sounds of children playing and the fragrance of summertime flowers fill the air, as Miss Read shepherds her students and friends through the warm season.

"If you've ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you'll relish a visit to Fairacre." —Jan Karon, #1 New York Times–bestselling author
