Description
An English village scrambles to prepare for a big anniversary: “If you’ve ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you’ll relish a visit to Fairacre.” —Jan KaronVillage Centenary welcomes readers back to Miss Read’s cozy English downland village just in time for the hundredth anniversary of Fairacre Shool. Miss Clare, who was a pupil and later a teacher there, points out that such a milestone should be celebrated, and all of Fairacre is quick to offer suggestions—from a tea party to a full-scale pageant.   Deciding how best to stage the grand occasion, however, is only one of Miss Read’s problems. The new teacher, Miss Briggs, fresh from college and full of idealistic theories, proves a thorn in Miss Read’s side. Plus: Miriam Quinn is afraid she might have to leave home; the vicar has decided to keep bees; the ancient skylight in the school is leaking; and Mrs. Pringle is her usual dour self.   But as the seasons continue to change, the centenary year unfolds—with all its hopes and fears, memories and feuds, and friendships that make the tough times so much easier to bear.
