Over the Gate | Miss Read
4 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
Throughout her years as schoolmistress, Miss Read has gathered excellent accounts of the rich and varied history of her beloved country village, often through neighborly conversation over the gate. Fairacre has garnered its share of odd incidents, entertaining episodes, and village folklore, from an unusual recipe for weight loss found in an old notebook -- and used with alarming consequences -- to the tragic story of the village ghost. With characteristic grace and vigor, Miss Read retells many treasured stories of Fairacre past and present.

merelybookish Pretty mug! 2mo
LeslieO I‘ve ever read a Miss Read, are they charming? Also, is it reed or red? 2mo
LeahBergen @jillrhudy @Sace @BookNAround It was definitely a few hours well-spent. 😊 2mo
LeahBergen @merelybookish Thanks! It was a recent purchase from a local potter. 2mo
LeahBergen @LeslieO They are very charming, non-taxing, and cozy. 😄 And I‘m not sure - I‘ve always pronounced it Miss “Reed” to myself. Hmmm... that would be a good Litsy handle, wouldn‘t it? 😆 2mo
LeslieO We should have thought of that instead of using our real names! 2mo
LeahBergen @LeslieO Right?? Geez, I was pretty uninspired when I joined Litsy. 😂😂 2mo

Miss Read and fish and chips

Over the Gate | Miss Read

Our village of Fairacre is no lovelier than many others. We have rats as well as roses in our back gardens, scoundrels as well as stalwarts ploughing our fields, and plenty of damp and dirt hidden behind the winsome exteriors of our older cottages. But at times it is not only home to us but heaven, too, and this was just such an occasion.
