Imagine my pleasure to find THIS one (which I'm not sure I have read)! Two Miss Read Christmas stories in one volume. I can't wait to begin. I'll be lighting evening candles, turning the volume on the carols down, and sipping a cup of tea as I read.
"For thirty-five years, Miss Read has been the standard-bearer of the English country village novel. Her ageless tales of thatched-roof cottages and two-room schoolhouses, dotty spinsters and genial eccentrics, have sold over two million copies and continue to win new generations of readers..." says the inside of the book cover.
