Mr Hannacot, the Master, has recently passed on. His aim is to secure the future of his family and ensure the farm is managed efficiently. In his will he insists that his sister, Prudence, should bring her business accumen to the farm. However, running a farm is rather different from running a successful draper’s shop and her methods are not always welcomed by her new colleagues! But how to get rid of her?
