It's 1979: Dallas is enthralling the nation on TV, Mrs Thatcher has just become prime minister, Abba is top of the pops, and in the small Yorkshire village of Ragley-on-the-Forest, Jack Sheffield returns for his third year as headmaster of the village school. Jack and his staff struggle to keep a semblance of normality throughout the turbulence of the school terms, as once again the official School Log fails to record what is really going on beneath the seemingly quiet routine. Ruby the caretaker discovers her Prince Charming; Vera the school secretary gets to meet her hero, Nicholas Parsons; and Jack, to his astonishment, finds himself having to stand in as a curiously skinny Father Christmas. Jack also finds himself, at last, having to choose between the vivacious sisters Beth and Laura Henderson ... Praise for Jack Sheffield 'Wry observation and heartwarming humour in equal measure' Alan Titchmarsh 'Overflowing with amusing anecdotes' Daily Express 'Amusing adventures at the North Yorkshire village school' Choice 'Jack Sheffield's in a class of his own' York Press

“Dear Teacher”

This is a light, amusing read, and very nostalgic. I found it very easy going, but some of the references were lost on me as I wasn't around at the time period in question. I did enjoy this book, although I... More
