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.
