A Peaceful Retirement

Thank you, thank you Audible Team for bringing out 6 more Miss Read audio books! One of them, A Peaceful Retirement, is a typical example of this author's work. Its about day to day country life, but also insightful and deals with social issues of its day. Miss Read is a bit like Jane Austin in her observations! A real treat.

A very peaceful read

Thoroughly enjoyed this restful and relaxing book. Sian Phillips has the kind of voice that I could listen to for hours. Indeed, I have.

SUBLIME

My absolute favourite of MISS READ. Am currently living out the same story and I am getting strength from listening to the ups and downs of real life.
