Description

Laura is now fourteen-and-a-half and setting off for a new life in the sleepy village of Candleford Green, as assistant to the clever, dapper Miss Dorcas Lane, who runs the Post Office. In Candleford Green new ideas and new ways are coming in from the outside world, from Dorcas' famous telegraph machine to the scandalous sight of ladies riding bicycles. There are also new people entering Laura's life: the curmudgeonly old servant Zillah, the grand Sir Thomas, the Irish harvesters and the ardent young gamekeeper Philip White. As Laura adjusts to this world, the traditions and ways of her country childhood seem further and further away - and a different future beckons. In this final part of Flora Thompson's charming and evocative "Lark Rise to Candleford" trilogy, the old finally gives way to the new.
