From the Book jacket: Flambards Divided is the eagerly awaited sequel to K.M. Peyton's Flambards trilogy which was made into a 12-part series for Public Television. Christina had dreamed of Will again. Why must he return to haunt her now, now that she is finally reconciled to his death? The First World War is almost over. Christina knows it is time to put the past behind her. For the sake of her children, the farm and the lovely old manorhouse of Flambards-and for her own sake as well-she decides to marry Dick Wright, her uncle's former stablehand who has always been in love with her. The social changes brought about by the war are less than Christina has reckoned, however. Dick is an able farmer, but he had once been a servant in the very household of which he is now the master. And when Will's brother Mark returns, wounded, from the battlefields of France, he bitterly resents Dick's new position in the house that he once owned. Soon Christina finds herself as much divided as Flambards, as she faces her conflicting feelings for two very different men. K.M. Peyton is an artist as well as a writer. She lives in Essex, England, in the heart of the countryside in which this story is set. A recipient of the Carnegie Medal, she is the author of many critically-acclaimed books in addition to the Flambards trilogy.

Mark's gentle brother William, equally passionate about design, building and flying the new technology of airplanes, is as despised by his father as Mark is loved. Christina grows up torn between both cousins by her love of William's personality and Mark's passion for horses and the fox-hunt. Recommended for grades 7 - 9

Finding herself pregnant, Christina redoubles her efforts to make Flambards a viable estate. But when her cousin Mark, Flambards true owner, appears, returning from imprisonment as a POW in Turkey after being presumed dead, all of Christina's plans are in jeopardy, and she must decide which course her life will take.
