Those Who Serve

Cordelia’s ex-coastguard cottage was inspired by thehome of one of our friends whi lives in just such a dwelling - but in Cornwall and not Devon. This is her view, on a rather dull and dismal day.

Those who have read The Chadwick Ttrilogy will be delighted to revisit the family and their friends at The Keep.

At the end of the trilogy Jolyon, who had been abandoned by his mother Maria, is living at the Keep with his father and his stepmother - Fliss.  He has plans to turn part of the grounds of the old house into a small holding growing organic fruits and vegetables - an ambition his mother views with disdain.

Now, however, Jolyon is a successful television presenter of  gardening programmes while Keep Organics (the company he had started) is thriving and the recently widowed Maria, lonely  and impressed by her son¹s fame, reappears and hopes to step back into his life. 

When Jolyon brings his new girlfriend Henrietta home to meet the extended family, he finds it difficult to trust Maria and forgive the hurt she had inflicted on him.   Henrietta also is vulnerable from the break-up of her parents¹ marriage.
