Gentle Escapism

This was an enjoyable glimpse of an idealised world that that is long gone and probably never existed.

Disappointed

I have read and listened to lots of Miss Read books, this one is by far my least favourite. I choose these for escapism, but this story didn't quite do this for me.
The narration was good, but Gwen Watford is perfection for these stories.
