Adapted from K.M. Peyton’s best-selling trilogy of books set in the early 1900s, Flambards tells the story of lively, independent, Christina Parsons, an orphan who is passed from pillar to post by family members until finally settling with her invalid uncle at his crumbling Essex estate, Flambards. As well as contending with her crippled and tyrannical uncle, Christina also has to deal with his son, Mark, a wastrel whose interests goes no further than drinking and hunting. However, she finds romance with his other son William, who challenges her ideas on class boundaries, as well as her love for horses and hunting. The story follows Christina, Mark and Williams’ experiences as war descends on Europe, her cousins join the fight and the world changes. Meanwhile, only Christina stands between Flambards and the estate being sold off to pay debtors.
