The Green Gauntlet

The Green Gauntlet

1942-1964
Paul and Claire Craddock have grown older in years – but not in spirit.

The turbulence of war is followed by a penurious peace. Changes are taking place in the countryside, from the way land is farmed to the hopes and expectations of the men and women who live there. Paul Craddock’s livelihood, his peace, and his vision of a good and noble way of life in Shallowford are all threatened.

With the help of his children and his children’s children, Paul starts to adapt his dreams in order to preserve the farm. To his surprise and pleasure, in doing so he comes to discover deeper, richer ties with those around him – ties that hold a ripe promise for the future.
