– The Taverners had lived at Buscombe, the mellow stone manor house in Wiltshire, for generations. They had farmed the land and sent theri sons to war (ande even, latterly, to commerce) in a way of life that seemed timeless. but in 1870 a new generation is about to take control – Tom Tavverner, dedicated, impulsive, deeply caring about his inheritance, ad his sister Catherine, intelligent, humorus, but frustrated by the limited opportunities open to women in a man’s world. Tom marries, and agricultural depression hits the estate. And suddenly it seems that everything which was so secure can no longer hold.- Uindbundet. – 701 sider. – Pænt eksemplar.
