I think that village of the imagination Featherhoughton may be down the hill behind our house ,across the river and just sitting there !.....in fact I know it is ....

Scrapiana

Thank you for that. My dear departed mother gave me this book in the early 1990s. Alas, it has remained on my shelf unread. Your review has provided the necessary spur to read.

Cornflower

Rhys, one of the many lines about the village which made me laugh was this one:
"The first event of autumn was the snowfall that blocked the pass that led through the moors to Yorkshire; this was generally accounted a good thing."!

I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

Mystica

I am happy that the book is available at the library (in Melbourne) so thats one of your recommendations at least I could try! I have been able to get such a few so far.

Coffee and a Book Chick

This does sound absolutely magical -- I think I've got this on my wish list, and now I need to run to make sure! :)
