Changes are taking place in the countryside, from the way land is farmed to the hopes and expectations of the men and women who live there. Paul Craddock's livelihood, his peace, and his vision of a good and noble way of life in Shallowford are all threatened. With the help of his children and his children's children, Paul starts to adapt his dreams in order to preserve the farm. To his surprise and pleasure, in doing so he comes to discover deeper, richer ties with those around him - ties that hold a ripe promise for the future.Hide synopsis
This book was the third in the trilogy about a family in Devon from 1900 onwards. It was filmed beautifully by the BBC, but the books brought the characters to like more skilfully, and provided a marvellous font of information about rural life and estate management after the Boer war.
