Book Review: Village School


This is the first of the Fairacre series of books, set in a quaint little town in England and centering on the village school teacher.  The series  has been compared to the Mitford series by Jan Karon and I agree the gentle style is similar to that in Father Tim’s world.  The characters are a bit predictable but well fleshed out and endearing, especially the children.  The humor is subtle but enough to crease a smile about. :)  It’s certainly a nice change of pace and a delightful bit of reading, the kind you walk away from in a happier state.

  1. I have taken this book out of the library several times, but always get sidetracked and don't get to it before it's due. Thanks for the reminder!


Thanks for stopping by!
