Change is afoot in the beautiful Cotswold village of Thrush Green...
As the early sunshine begins to warm Thrush Green, it looks as if it is going to be a golden summer. But in this apparently sleepy village, there is a flurry of activity.
As Molly Curdle prepares for her new baby, rumour has it that a retirement is planned and the village school teacher is about to make an important decision. And as Thrush Green's vicar sits down to write his sermon, he has no idea of the potential disaster which is unfolding...
All is not as idyllic as it seems for the unsuspecting villagers, for change is never far away.
