Village Fortunes Synopsis

Things are heating up in the village of Turnham Malpas. Now comfortably settled in the Big House, Johnny and Alice Templeton are over the moon at the arrival of their second son. But Johnny's roguish younger brother, Chris, is visiting from Brazil and causing trouble in the village. For Ford and Mercedes Barclay, returning to the village after all these years is a big step. Will they be welcomed or shunned? And will Ford be able to convince people he's a changed man? Meanwhile, poor Fran Charter-Plackett has some important decisions to make about her future. With all her siblings having flown the nest, the pressure is on to decide what to do with her life. And when her parents discover Fran's shocking secret, things really start to get messy...

The Good Book Guide Review

After the birth of their much-wanted second son, Johnny and Alice Templeton find their little family idyll – and the wider community – upset by the arrival of Johnny’s irresponsible and dangerously attractive younger brother Chris, from Brazil. Former popular village residents Ford and Mercedes Barclay return to their erstwhile home after businessman Ford’s spell in prison, to the delight of most of the villagers, and the disapproval of some. And young Fran Charter-Plackett is chaffing at the familial bit as she struggles to decide on a life path, and an unsuitable boyfriend soon gives her parents cause for concern.
