Most agreed it was an OK read but nothing very remarkable. Many thought it was all too twee with all the problems getting sorted out and village life portrayed as idyllic in the 1970s. We thought it may make a good Sunday night drama as each chapter was like an episode with problems solved by the end.

  1. Review by Morningtide WI, Lee-on-the-Solent
    An account of the life of s new headmaster at an infants school in a small village in Yorkshire. Amusing and occasionally surprising. Enjoyed by all the group; a book suitable for a gift or for holiday reading.
