KIRKUS REVIEW

This brings back many who appeared in Thrush Green with the excitements of the Spring arrival of Mrs. and her Fair. Dr. and Mrs. Balley are still lending a helping hand, Dr. Lovell and Futh produce a child; the rector finds a surcease from his life as a ; Mr. learns that Tilling is more agile than he; and there is the newcomer, Harold Shoosmith, whose occupancy of the corner house brings a whole new interest to the Green's inhabitants. Shoosmith's concern with the reputation of Nathaniel Patten, his desire to raise a monument to this local hero, his ability to adjust to the Green's infinitesimal tempests, and his whole acceptance of the local activities and personalities of this Cotswold village make up a placid tale for those who prefer balm to bomb. For the carry on trade, gently conservative. I.S. Goodall's illustrations too continue the tradition.
