Description

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.

display_descriptionR. F. Delderfield concludes his bestselling A Horseman Riding By saga of twentieth-century England with a novel that follows the Craddock family through the end of World War II and the challenges of a new era Paul Craddock's village in rural Devon has endured despite the heartbreak and sorrows of war. The landowner and his family have also known their share of loss. But now, as England struggles to rebuild in the aftermath of World War II, he and his wife, Claire, and their children confront new perils. With his livelihood threatened by emerging property laws and his family divided over the future of his beloved Shallowford estate, Craddock struggles to preserve his legacy. For his sons and daughter, the fifties and sixties will be a time of discovery and change that will resonate in the lives of their own children. The final novel in Delderfield's magnificent trilogy pays tribute to the courage and unflagging optimism of British villagers trying to keep step with modern times even as they cling to the traditions of a bygone world. The Green Gauntlet is the third novel in R. F. Delderfield's saga A Horseman Riding By, which begins with Long Summer Day and continues with Post of Honour.
