Sarah throws herself into work to take her mind off the pain of unexpected, unrequited love while Carne reluctantly comes to terms with the idea that his beloved Muriel can never be restored to him.
Sarah's ideals are turned inside out when an everyday tragedy hits close to home and she realises that it is not as easy as she thinks to change the world. At Maythorpe, Robert Carne is living with the consequences of a single act of madness almost fifteen years before.
Fiery teacher Sarah Burton comes home to the South Riding full of ambition and hunger to change the world while landowner Robert Carne is persuaded to send his delicate daughter Midge to school.
This 20th-century classic is a rich and panoramic portrait of a Yorkshire community in the Thirties that carries surprising and refreshing echoes of our own time. In the long aftermath of the First World War, 30-year-old Sarah Burton comes home from London to Yorkshire to take up the headmistress-ship of a struggling Yorkshire high school for girls. Before long her ambitions are in conflict with her feelings for the man least likely to have won her heart.
