Friendship, a newcomer - and romance ... from the author of THE VILLAGE GREEN AFFAIR.

Seb is to find that his expertise with animals and their owners leads to a friendship with the upper-class Jilly and rather more than that with Maggie whose family is heartbroken when he diagnoses their alpacas with TB. But when a surprise meeting in the Practice itself turns his world upside down...
