Synopsis

Storm Over Burracombe by Lilian Harry

There's trouble afoot in Burracombe...

Hilary Napier is upset and angry when her father brings in a new manager for the family estate which she has been running for the past year. Even though she cannot help liking Travis Kellaway, she resents his presence. But before long she begins to appreciate Travis's strength and compassion, and she finds herself drawn to him.

Meanwhile, life in the village is enlivened by the new drama club, formed by energetic young curate Felix Copley. Almost the entire village becomes involved in the pantomime he decides to organise - with results they didn't quite plan for!

Then tragedy strikes, making everyone realise exactly what is important in their lives...
