Synopsis

Flambards in Summer by K. M. Peyton

1916. The First World War is well underway, and Christina is one of the many women left behind. When she returns to Flambards, she finds much has changed. The house is buried in ivy, the paddocks are overgrown, and the once busy stables are deserted and desolate. Christina vows to return the manor house to its former glory, and works hard to transform her childhood home into a successful farm. It is only when a familiar face appears at her door one day that she realizes Flambards may even bring her love again ...A welcome reissue of this much-loved family saga.
