Two Christmas novels from Miss Read - the perfect festive treat! CHRISTMAS AT FAIRACRE From an unexpected visitor on Christmas Eve in 'The Christmas Mouse' to an unwelcome change of plan in 'No Holly for Miss Quinn', Miss Read recounts some of the traditional Christmas events where often, despite the most careful planning, things do not always go as expected. In his charming collection of Christmas stories Miss Read describes the season's events with great tenderness and nostalgia. A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS From the poignant story of 'The White Robin' and the intriguing tale of 'The Fairacre Ghost' to the rural festivities recounted in 'Tales from a Village School', Miss Read's wry wit and light touch is the perfect antidote to long winter evenings.
