I read Flambards when I was a teenager and loved it. This is only the first novel in the series though. Would be a huge bargain if it was all of them - too much to hope for from Amazon smile. Loved the tv series (from the 80's) too. I still remember that haunting theme tune that went with it. Nostalgia trip ....

I nearly rushed to buy this then remembered that I've still got a 40-ish yo paperback. I loved K M Peyton.

Morrus..

Orphan girl goes to live with crusty uncle in mouldering stately home. 2 cousins (fell in love with Will). Lots of horses. Turn of 20th century, eve of first world war.

Later books just as good with a bit of romancing love triangle stuff with horses and aeroplanes.

Ooh sounds right up my alley.

Oh I loved these and did an author study on Kathleen Peyton for O level. I wrote to her and she was Lind enough to write back. Also read 'Why Didn't They Tell The Horses?' By Christine McKenna who played Christine, about how she had to learn to ride after getting the part by lying to the producers that she already could. (Just seen it's available on Amazon used for a penny)
