Five young Ayrtons all grew up at Amberwell, playing in the gardens and preparing themselves to venture out into the world. To each of these children, Amberwell meant something different, but common to all of them was the idea that it was more than just where they lived - it was part of them.
MISS BUNCLE MARRIED
Marriage to Arthur Abbott has done nothing to stop Barbara Buncle from involving herself in the lives of her neighbours. After moving to London, Barbara and Arthur are enjoying their newly-wedded bliss, but not the city life. The only solution to their problem? Returning to the country. Barbara finds the perfect candidate in the town of Wandlebury and the Abbotts make it their home. Barbara doesn't intend to get mixed up with those around her again, but can't help falling into scrapes, often with humorous consequences!
MISS BUNCLE'S BOOK
In a charming English village, Miss Barbara Buncle, a maiden lady was obliged to write a book because - as she naively explained - her dividends were so poor. Unfortunately, Miss Buncle had no imagination, so she wrote about her friends - quite kindly and truthfully, of course. The reactions of her friends to Miss Buncle's book, however, were a little surprising, and the far-reaching and unexpected results of its publication cause quite a stir.
The continuing story of the lives and loves of the Ayrton family, in particular that of Major Roger Ayrton M.C. It begins as Roger is flying home to Amberwell on leave, full of plans for his family and home. Sequel to 'Amberwell' (11842).
THE TWO MRS ABBOTTS
Mrs Abbott is flustered at the thought of putting up a lady from the Red Cross, but is happily surprised when she turns out to be an old friend from her previous life as an infamous writer. Of course, she's now far too busy with her children to write, not to mention helping out in the lives of the villagers. And with a possible spy in their midst, evacuated families, potential love matches and a visit from a famous writer, she's got her work cut out for her. Luckily for her, the other Mrs Abbott is around to help.
