Summary:

Mrs. Pringle, the lugubrious school cleaner, has always been a favorite character in the Fairacre series. Here, through the eyes and anecdotes of the schoolmistress Miss Read and others, we trace Maud Pringle’s life. They include childhood visits to the village from her Caxley home, through her working days before her marriage to Fred Pringle, and on to her long association with Fairacre School. We meet again many old friends as they cross Mrs. Pringle’s path: Mr. Willet the caretaker, Mr. Partridge the vicar, Miss Clare, and Miss Read'’ friend Amy. And their adventures make another enchanting excursion to Fairacre that will delight Miss Read’s devoted followers.

    I adore these books. They simply are a great escape from all that is going on in the world right now.They bring one back to a simpler time of yes Miss, and no sir. A time when for a teacher to call on a student's family for dinner was not considered odd but was expected. The characters in the village of fairacre jump from the pages. As do all the sights, sounds and dare I say smells of village life just a few years post world war II. If you are looking for a lovely story to simply enjoy as one would looking at clouds on a summers day, this book could not be a better choice.
