From the cover: “This, the fourth volume of this famous series, opens with Renny’s return from the First World War. During his absence both his father and his stepmother have died and there is a small stepbrother whom Renny has never seen. Renny is now Master of Jalna. Both the estate and the family show the need of a strong hand. The baby is a spoiled brat. The boys, Piers and Eden, have made the most of their freedom. The uncles have managed the farm with blissful disregard to economics. Eden is enamoured of an older woman; a family council elects Uncle Ernest to rescue Eden by cutting him out. Renny hires a young man and his ‘sister’ to train his colts, and is soon entangled with the girl. All in all, it is a typically busy Jalna year.”
