Changes at Fairacre - Miss ReadMichael Joseph, 1991, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight.
From the cover: “The community is saddened to see old cottages where their grandparents and aunts and uncles once lived being bought by outsiders who alter them beyond recognition, and who themselves are often too tired from their commuter lives to take part in village affairs. Whilst the car widens the family's horizons for days out and holidays, it can also take children to other schools — and numbers at the Fairacre school are now so low that Miss Read fears it may be closed by the authorities. Miss Read is also most anxious about her old friend Dolly Clare who is now in her final illness. But Amy, Miss Read's old college friend, gives support, and life is always stimulated by the energetic children, and the bristling indignation of Mrs Pringle, the school cleaner.”
