The Little Village School (Hardback)
The Little Village School is a warm, funny, moving and romantic novel from bestselling author of the Dales series, Gervase Phinn. It tells the story of life in a village primary school when a new headmistress arrives. The school in Barton-in-the-Dale has more problems than school dinners and Elisabeth Divine also has to deal with a bitter former headteacher, a grumpy caretaker as well as so much gossip. Poignantly told, Gervase Phinn's first novel for adults creates a fictional world that's as real as can be and will delight his legion of fans.

"A very enjoyable read" -
I am a great fan of Gervase Phinn’s tales of his days as a school inspector in Yorkshire and this novel has a similar style and use of language. The author has a real knack for picking up out a characterful child and has done so again in the book, as I am sure the three stars, Oscar, James and Danny are based on real children. And anyone who has ever worked in a school will recognise the caretaker with the bad back, the put-upon secretary and the new-broom head teacher. All these characters hold together a slightly thin if well worked storyline and make for a very enjoyable read.
