In the early 1900's in England, young Christina is orphaned and goes to
live with her Uncle Russell, who owns the country estate of Flambards,
and has two sons. Mark, the elder, is a wastrel, a roue and, like his
father, loves to hunt. The younger son William lives to fly aeroplanes.
Christina finds herself struggling with the ideas of classism as she
falls in love with country life, the hunt, and one of her cousins. But
after their impulsive marriage, when her husband is called away by the
First World War, Christina must keep Flambards afloat by herself.

Flambards in Summer is a novel for children or young adults by K. M.
Peyton, first published by Oxford in 1969 with illustrations by Victor
Ambrus. It completed the Flambards trilogy (1967–1969) although Peyton
continued the story a dozen years later, and controversially reversed
the ending in Flambards Divided. Set in England just after World War I,
Flambards in Summer features Christina Parsons as a young widow,
returning to the decrepit Flambards estate to recover a life there.
