By H E Bates


Ten-year-old Ned spends two long, hot summers with his great uncle Silas in the village of Souldrop. While Silas instructs his nephew in the ways of country life he finds plenty of time away from the beady eye of housekeeper Mrs Betts to indulge in his two great loves, women and home-made wine - the combination of which constantly lands him in hot water.
