Mrs Griffin Sends Her Love — 8 Comments

  1. I’m so thankful for this Jill and Victoria. What a lovely interview! I started collecting “Miss Read’s” books some time ago, and was thrilled to discover a new collection of her writings to go with them (thanks to Miss Victoria Connelly for announcing the good news!). I enjoy the ‘Fairacre’ series best, but ‘Thrush Green’ comes in a very close second. I haven’t read ‘Mrs. Griffin Sends Her Love’ yet, due to the many other books I’m currently reading, but it’s definitely next on my reading list…for sure…and I can’t wait! For now, it’s propped up beautifully on my bookshelf, waiting to be devoured and enjoyed again and again! xx

  2. I didn’t know about this book so I’m thrilled to hear about it. I’m a huge fan of ‘Miss Read’, and as a young teacher, a few years ago now ;), I devoured every one. I re-read them from time to time and get the same enjoyment as I did the first time I read them.
    Thank you Victoria for highlighting this book, and thank you Jill for adding another to a wonderful collection!

  3. I’ve just finished ‘Mrs Griffin sends her love’. So great to be able to have just a little more of ‘Miss Read’. She is easily my favourite author, her books are amazing.

  4. Thank you for sharing this interview. I’ve been a Miss Read fan for over 30 years and have collected all like of Dora Saint’s book apart from about 3 children’s books. I wrote to Dora 30 years ago and she replied with a lovely letter. Her books have given me great pleasure and I have read them many times – they are like a cosy chat with a dear friend. I would dearly love to contact Jill Saint and wonder if you have an address? Victoria B.

  5. I have loved these books for years but only now have started to collect them.i read them every year, usually starting in the spring but this year i started at Xmas and haven’t stopped.they are my prized possessions, I’m only sorry i couldn’t tell dora saint how fabulous they were,all i can say is thank you for many hours of pleasure year after year

  6. I love reading all of Miss Read books. Now I have the pleasure of buying this one. Read them over and over and have everyone except for the childrens ones which I hope to add to my collection when I can get them. A joy to read over and over again. Thankyou.

  7. Now that there will be no more Miss Read books, I shall return to the novels and reread some (all?) of them. I just happened, by luck, to find this book, and I read it one piece each day, to make it last longer.
