    One thought on “Fairacre Festival”

    1. Miss Read's books were written a long time ago. They are perhaps old-fashioned in content and have a gentleness that attracted me. They all have humour and poignancy. This one is typical of all of her books. Many years ago I read them. As a Primary school teacher at that time they had a certain appeal and I enjoyed reading them. I chose to read one again after all these years and it made for pleasant reading. Not for everyone I would imagine.

    2. Not the usual village saga but I like it because its a complete little story which involves the whole Fairacre community pulling together to support the church in its time of need. Its a book I read every summer sitting under the lilac tree in my garden, English country life at its best.

    3. This is the seventh in the Fairacre books, which I've been kind of hoarding so I won't get to the end of them. In this book a dramatic wind storm hits Fairacre village and blows over the top of the church that has been standing there for hundreds of years and which has long been the center of village life. The estimate for repairs is well beyond what is available or can be raised by a thrift sale or concert, so plans are made to hold a week long festival in the summer. They plan entertainments a [...]

    4. A disaster has struck Fairacre. There's a major storm and the wind causes damage all over but especially to the church. A huge elm has fallen over and damaged the roof. Getting the tree moved isn't the major problem; it's raising the money to do repairs.The local church council won't help (how generous of them) so it's up to the village to try to raise the money. They try a wide variety of things and even have a festival. Their main singer is unable to perform, though, and it looks like they mig [...]

    5. A quick bedtime read. Natural disaster strikes Fairacre and the entire village unites in the face of adversity. How they go about getting things to normal is what this book is all about. A little short of 4 stars!

    6. A lovely mornings read. I love the gentleness of the writing, and the wonderful observations of human nature.

    7. I'd been wanting to try a Miss Read book for a long time and was so pleased to find this one at the used book store. I was even more pleased once I sat down and got to read this little treasure.The storyline: Miss Read is a schoolteacher in the small village of Fairacre, Scotland. The story is told from her point of view: the likeable characters (and the unlikeable ones too!) for example, the plump and irritable Mrs. Pringle, the Vicar, the polite Major Gunning, and skeptic Mrs. Mawne, along wit [...]

    8. The little town of Fairacre experiences a terrible storm that badly damages the church, and the community needs to come together to find a way to raise 2000 pounds. There's no way the little village can raise that much on its own. When the church board decides on a week long festival featuring many events they hope that they will be able to draw in people from neighboring communities. The vicar is all to aware that if they can't raise the needed money, the church will have to sell the chalice th [...]

    9. While this is a short novel it is a good story about a small English village whose church has been badly damaged by a severe wind storm. These were the days when there were still some elms shading the ground. The village is poor, with few amenities and the people live in a barely comfortable manner with no extra's to speak of. Nonetheless they are responsible for the repair of the church which is the center of their community. There is no organization that is going to step in and help them at al [...]

    10. Public library copy. Fairer #7 I am enjoying reading them in order (again).The church roof is damaged in a storm. The village takes on the daunting task of raising the money for repairs, culminating in the Fairacre Festival. In just over 100 pages, Miss Read leads her readers through the course of the village project, from start to finish.While this volume takes a detour from the routine school activities, it does not wander from the theme of village life. It does focus more on the adults, and t [...]

    11. A terrible wind storm damages the church. The good people of Fairacre rally round to raise the money to pay for the repairs. The Queen Anne silver chalice is at stake if they don't raise enough. I enjoyed this book. One of the characters writes the script for a luminary show describing the history of the church. I wish Miss Read had told us more about the nun who took cover in the church in the 16th Century.

    12. I love-love-love Miss Read's books! In our library, they are on the GENTLE BOOKS shelves in our library yet they are full of life's every day humor, dilemma, family drama, friendship, trials and so forth. You know someone who is just like the people of Fairacre, Thrush Green and other surrounding villages. This would be a great series if well adapted on screen by BBC.

    13. Miss Read is the undisputed master of the heartwarming cozy tale of English village life. This story, of Fairacre denizens throwing a festival to save the Queen Anne chalice in their church, displays Miss Reed's talent in top form. If you don't get the warm fuzzies from this book you are likely either a. a male devotee of Foer-Franzen-Moore-Sedaris and their ilk or b. legally dead.

    14. Another book by Miss Read depicting village life in Fairacre, Scotland, In this one we see the whole community, plus surrounding towns, gather together to repair the church after a devastating storm. Will they have to sell their 250 year old communion chalice to pay for a new roof and steeple repairs?

    15. This series is comforting. If you are in the mood to feel like you live in a small village full of interesting characters and mostly nice people then following along as Miss Read teaches school and interacts with neighbors is a treat.

    16. light summer reading- another great Miss Read book. I love how the village came together in this book to take care of their beloved church.

    17. Another nice little read. Disaster happens in the village and the villagers have to pull together.

    18. Alright - very gentle and warm and quite funny in parts but extremely short. I hadn't realised this was more of a novella and I'm a little disappointed.

    19. A windstorm fells a tree on St. Patrick's church and the villagers put together a festival to raise money for repairs.A visit in Fairacre with Miss Read cures all ills!
