Somerset, 1911: The forces of war are building across Europe, but this pocket of England, where the rhythms of lives are dictated by the seasons and the land, remains untouched. Albert Sercombe is a farmer on Lord Prideaux’s estate and his eldest son, Sid, is underkeeper to the head gamekeeper. His son, Leo, a talented rider, grows up alongside the master’s spirited daughter, Charlotte — a girl who shoots and rides, much to the surprise of the locals.

Seasons in Somerset circa 1911 with horse-loving, twelve-year-old Leo and his brothers and sister, the children of a carter who works the master's estate. Maybe more than anyone could possibly want to know about pre-WWI farming techniques, but at the same time, the story of "the boy" and his special affinity for horses is engaging. Part One of a trilogy.
