The Heart of the Dales Summary

The Heart of the Dales by Gervase Phinn

"The Heart of the Dales" marks the welcome return of a much-loved cast of unforgettable characters. Awkward teachers, pompous school governors and fearsome lollipop ladies occasionally make Gervase Phinn's hectic job as a school inspector in the Yorkshire Dales more than difficult. But for Gervase, the focus, and challenge, remains the frankly spoken children. However, the new school year doesn't get off to the best start after a teacher intimates that Gervase has let him and his school down. So when he is called up in front of his new boss, the formidable Miss de la Mare, Gervase fears he is going to be in hot water. To add to his woes, he is given another 'little job' by the Chief Education Officer, which inevitably means liaising with the infuriating and interfering Mrs Savage - the bain of the inspectors' lives. Meanwhile, away from the pressure of school, Gervase's life with wife Christine and their new baby son, is blissful - until an assortment of noises in the attic start to disturb their nights...
