Review

Miss Read, who wrote two highly regarded series of novels — Fairacre and Thrush Green — wrote only two slender volumes about herself, and Time Remembered is the second, published in 1986, the story of her three years attending a village school in Chelsfield, long since absorbed by Greater London. Not all that she remembers is entirely pleasant — dreadful Arithmetic was clearly out to ambush her at every turn — but everything is written with Miss Read’s trademark charm, dashes of wit and little bits of quiet social commentary punctuating a simple joyful narrative.
