"A sleepy golden summer contains a flurry of activity in the village in this sequel to 'Return to Thrush Green'. Rumors spread that Mr. Venables is considering retirement just as the village's teacher is about to make an important decision. Molly Curdle prepares for a new baby. Vicar Henstock works on his sermon, quite unaware of the disaster that will overtake him."
