Storyline

Sarah returns to spend Christmas alone in Kiplington but ends up having a pleasant day with Joe. She is anxious to get Lydia back in school and the opportunity arises when Mr. Holly persuades lonely widow Mrs. Brimsley to be his housekeeper. Carne accuses Snaith of corruption after Huggins has invited Carne to join them in buying cheap swampland to sell at a profit to the council for the housing estate. Snaith counters by suing him for slander and gets away with things when he proves that he has earmarked other land for the development, to Huggins' financial detriment. Carne falls from his horse and is killed and Midge opts to go away with her grandfather rather than stay in Kiplington with Mrs. Beddows. With Joe leaving the area, Sarah is tempted to return to London but is persuaded to stay by Mrs. Beddows. As the Carnes' old house becomes a hospital, to which Carne's wife Muriel is transferred, Sarah is proud to see Lydia win her university scholarship. Written by don @ minifie-1
