This is a wonderful book, but whoever prepared it for Kindle was really sloppy. In addition to some general typos, there were some couple of weird things that were consistent throughout. Firstly, every place where there should have been a dash, there was nothing -- not even a space. Secondly, every place where the letters "pre" should have appeared, they were replaced with "div". So "spread" was rendered "sdivad", "presence" became "divsence", "prevent" was "divvent", etc. It made for very awkward reading.

I ordered this book after watching this series on PBS. This book has such an insight of the lives of everyday people living their every day lives. It is well-written with an eye for how progress comes every so slowly into everyone's life!

Its not nearly as spicy as the TV series, slower and more reflective, but interesting in its own way, a kind of social history of rural England in late 19th century.

Read this book as a teenager. My mother kept the review that I wrote. Had to buy the book.

I enjoyed Candleford Green because it reminded me of a town I knew as a child when I spent time with my grandparents. I liked the close knit neighbors and friends who knew each other so well. At times it is meddling and other times it is wonderful to have such tight connections. It was of a time gone by when people trusted each other and found their entertainment in being with friends. I like so much Laura's wide-eyed experiences as she sees the larger world. We just know she is going to go on to greater things and this is part of her journey. A good Read.
