Abstract:

The Misses Waters treasured their peace in the village of Fairacre until the arrival of the noisy, cheerful Emery family in the house across the street. It was true that the children, though scandalously ill-kempt, had beautiful manners, buat their mother was far too casual, in both dress and behaviour, to please the conservative stalwarts of the village. In fact, it was only the advent of a Christmas baby that was to thaw the sisters' frosty attitude and cause a warm flowering of seasonal goodwill in Fairacre.
