Long Summer Day Summary


Long Summer Day: The first in the magnificent saga trilogy by R. F. Delderfield

1902-1911
An age of innocence and hope.
Before the storm clouds roll over Europe.

As Paul Craddock recovers from his Boer War injuries, he starts to plan a new life. As soon as he is able he invests all he has in a remote but beautiful estate in Devon, determined to make something wonderful of the place and to be at the heart of what is most real and most important.

Then he meets Grace, beautiful and passionate, and mistress of the land he has so quickly grown to love. They are equals in determination, honour and vision but their attraction for each other is matched by their conflicting hopes and ambitions. As Paul gains knowledge, contentment and stature in Shallowford it is at the price of heartbreak, disappointments and bittersweet lessons learned.
