Pastures New

Pastures New
by Ann Purser

After Frank Palmer's job is eliminated due to his company down-sizing, he and his wife Peggy take a leap of faith and purchase a post office in a quiet English village named Round Ringford.

Ringford awaits the Palmers in eager anticipation. Village scourge, Ivy Beasley, lurks behind her lace curtains like an old spider waiting to pounce. Kindly Jean Jenkins, with her brood of children, is helpful and welcoming, and Doreen Price, farmer's wife, becomes Peggy's best friend.

Never a dull moment in this quaint village! Followers of the Miss Read stories will surely enjoy this.
