Lindsey has problems with the infuriating colt Chalice whose escapes torment the Thorntons. Trailing around the Devil’s Punchbowl at night in the rain looking for Chalice would be bad enough, but the heifers are being led out as well. And it’s term time. But there’s time to hunt. Dion gets a fox, though not as expected; Peter spends hours hunting one particular rabbit, Muncher, and Lindsey takes up the organ. A nasty accident on the Punchbowl road brings more problems.
Brian Parks has written an introduction on the London - Portsmouth road (the Punchbowl road) which until very recently ran past the Punchbowl. We are also including a really lovely short story by Monica Edwards called Sure Magic.
