Changes at Fairacre
Changes are afoot in the village of Fairacre...
Over the years, Fairacre has seen many changes, some for the better, some less so. But the declining number of children at the village school has again threatened it with closure, and for Miss Read this means maybe losing her livelihood and her home. And as she loses a dear friend, it is with a heavy heart that Miss Read inherits the cottage of Miss Clare.
Some things, however, never change: Miss Read's stout housekeeper, Mrs Pringle, continues her tirades; the harvest fair and fête remain cherished events; Amy has a problem with a most unwelcome guest; and a snowstorm and hurricane hit the village.

|display_description||Times are changing in the charming downland village of Fairacre, and Miss Read isn't certain that it's all for the best. The new commuter lifestyle has caused a drop in attendance at the local school, and officials are threatening closure. Miss Read worries about the failing health of Dolly Clare. Vegetable gardens have given way to trips to the Caxley markets, and the traditional village fete now includes a prize for best quiche. With her trademark patience and good humor, Miss Read hopes for the best and plans for the worst as the village grows increasingly modern. Despite all the innovations, Fairacre still retains its essential elements: gentle wit, good manners, and the comfort of caring neighbors.|
