It's the late 1950s and change is in the air. For the Napier family, up at the big house, the old ways are shifting. Hilary must discover if reaching out for a chance of happiness must mean breaking away from the life expected of her, while Patsy, their young housekeeper's help, is facing motherhood without her own family around her. Down the hill from the Napiers, villagers young and old are setting out on adventures - Stella and Felix begin married life, change comes to the village school and the Tozer family continue to find surprises in their midst.
Lillian Harry's Burracombe books are a trip back to a bygone era after WWII. If you need good stories that will leave you happier than when you started, these are for you. Exactly what's needed to counteract the nightly news.

Another lovely story about village life in Burracombe, superbly read once again by Anne Dover.
