Dora Saint, R. I. P. Dora Saint, whose novels about the gentle rhythms of English village life, written under the crisp, pedagogical pseudonym Miss Read, drew a wide following on both sides of the Atlantic, died on April 7 at her home in Shefford Woodlands, in Berkshire, England. She was 98.

Another "I didn't know she was still alive until I read her obituary" moment.

I enjoy those Miss Reads books. They're perfect if you're between books and want something quiet and soothing.
