The villagers of Turnham Malpas are relieved to have Rector Peter Harris and his family back from Africa. But when Peter returns to Africa to fulfill a promise, the family he leaves behind is a troubled one. The twins are disturbed by their traumatic experiences in Africa, and Caroline is finding it hard to deal with the fact that they will not share their feelings with her. The villagers are also missing Peter's guidance, especially when the village store is the target of petty theft and violence. Everyone is banking on Peter's return to restore harmony - but will he make it back before things get out of hand?
