“If you’ve ever enjoyed a visit to Mitford, you’ll relish a visit to Thrush Green,” where there’s a spring in the step of villagers young and old (Jan Karon, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).
 
It is spring in the village of Thrush Green. In neighboring Lulling, Charles Henstock admires the blooming garden of his new vicarage, glad the squabbles with his parishioners in Affairs at Thrush Green are settled. And yet the good vicar wistfully recalls his former home—the ugly, old rectory of Thrush Green, which burned to the ground. Now, from the rectory’s ruins, the villagers are building eight retirement homes for the older folks most in need. But how to choose who will live there? How will they get on together? And how will they accommodate the dogs, cats, and birds that must come along? The spring has brought a new crop of dilemmas, but Dr. Henstock and the villagers are determined to make the old people feel at home in Thrush Green.
 
In the end, harmony is restored to this tiny fictional world. With wit and grace, Miss Read has charmed numerous critics and won the loyalty of readers who will happily find themselves once more At Home in Thrush Green.
 
“Beneath the deceptive simplicity . . . there is arch humor and perceptive character analysis . . . Delightful.” —Publishers Weekly
