The third novel in the bestselling Thrush Green series.

There are new people on the Green…

When old Admiral Trigg and his sister Lucy died, their house – Tullivers – stood empty for many months. Then one bright April day, some discreet onlookers saw a good-looking woman pushing her way through the nettles to the front door.

Who was she? Was she on her own? Had she bought the house, and, if so, what kind of a neighbour would she be? These were just some of the questions asked by the curious residents of Thrush Green, a village bubbling with feuds, disasters and delights, all observed by Miss Read with her customary wry wit and charm.
