Abstract:

Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, Thrush Green is normally a peaceful place. But as autumn turns to winter, feelings are running high in the village. Miss Fogerty, a respected teacher at the village school for over thirty years, is troubled by the methods of the new young teacher. Dotty Harmer takes up driving, much to the concern of others, and it isn't long before she is involved in an accident and a threatening court case. And when the good rector innocently suggests that the neglected churchyard should be tidied up, Thrush Green is outraged. It seems wherever you look, there are difficulties and changes, but as spring arrives, there is renewed hope that all will end well" --Back cover.
