A Miss Read day at Minster Lovell — 8 Comments

  1. I enjoyed reading this, especially the questions and answers. Dora must have have been so pleased that she touched so many lives. Thank you!

  2. I was interested to hear about Dora Saint’s travels as some of my favorite parts of the books are Miss Read’s travels with Amy and with John after she retired.

  3. That was so interesting. Thanks to you both for doing this. I remember Dora telling me about their timeshare in Torquay and I hoped it wasn’t near Fawlty Towers!

  4. This interview and photographs were so informative. I have been a Miss Read fan for many years, I love all her books and frequently escape to Thrush Green and Fairacre continuing to give me much enjoyment. I have joined the Facebook page why have I missed it until now ?
    Many thanks.

  5. Lovely! I have collected all the Miss Read book, finding them both in the US and UK and re-read them often, and shared them on my blog. Have been to Minster Lovell many times, but didn’t know of the connection to the author. So glad she is having a resurgence of interest in her books!
