Tongues are wagging in this charming novel of English village life. “If you’ve ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you’ll relish a visit to Thrush Green” (Jan Karon, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).
 
Gossip from Thrush Green returns readers to the delightful English village, neighbor to Fairacre, for a golden summer. But this sleepy, pristine setting conceals a flurry of activity amongst the villagers. Rumor has it that Mr. Venables is considering retirement just as the village’s teacher is about to make an important decision. Molly Curdle prepares for a new baby. The kindly vicar, Charles Henstock, works on his sermon—quite unaware of the disaster that will overtake him. However, there is never any doubt that all will end well in this very English village.
 
“There is a special kind of English writer who writes deceptively simple evocations of English rural life. . . . It is not earth-shattering, but it reveals the fragility of even the most ordinary lives, the courage and stoicism with which people respond to adversity, their generosity in friendship and their gratitude for small pleasures.” —The Washington Post
 
“Bid a joyful welcome to old friends and new . . . in their beloved . . . Thrush Green, the happy world to which Miss Read introduced us so many years ago.” —Publishers Weekly
