A classic Miss Read novel with great characters

Would you consider the audio edition of Mrs Pringle to be better than the print version?

the same

What did you like best about this story?

the growing buildup of the interseting characters in the village

What does Gwen Watford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved the English accents which helped to bring the different characters to life

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

over several sittings

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed these old , almost historical, books which gave a great portrait of a vanished rural life

Gentle Escapism

Mrs Pringle is a very likeable character despite her curmudgeonly ways and I have enjoyed reading about her in many of the Miss Read books. This isn't one of my favourite Fairacre books but it was a pleasant story to listen to while travelling in the car. The narrator is excellent and very well suited to the books by Miss Read.

Mrs Pringle

A very pleasing story of the inhabitants of Fairacre and especially Mrs Pringle-fierce but humorous character.
