Storm over Burracombe Publisher's Summary

Hilary Napier is upset and angry when her father brings in a new manager for the family estate, which she's been running for the past year. Even though she resents his presence, she cannot help liking Travis Kellaway. When her defences are broken down by the illness of her brother's much-loved horse, she realises Travis' strength and compassion. It isn't long before their relationship moves to a new footing.

Meanwhile, village life in Burracombe is enlivened by the new Drama Club, formed by the energetic young curate Felix Copley. Almost everyone becomes involved in the pantomime he decides to organise, with some hilarious results - and a tragic issue.
