The village of Burracombe is looking forward to the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, but 1953 is to prove a year of heartbreak as well as celebration. While Stella Simmons begins to plan her wedding to Felix Copley, her sister Maddy is only just coming to terms with the loss of her own fiancé; Val and Luke Ferris are wondering if they will ever become parents, and Hilary Napier's chances of marriage seem to slip away, after coming tantalizingly close. The Tozer family also face anxiety. As grandmother Minnie fights for her life, Tom and Joanna's premature twins battle with their own crisis and Jackie, working and living in Plymouth, is determined to live her own life. Meanwhile, the life of the village goes on, with all its ups and downs, its feuds and scandals. Bossy Joyce Warren tries to organize everything and everyone, Miss Kemp and Stella plan another school event, Jacob Prout strives to keep Burracombe looking its best for the festivities, and, in the midst of it all, romance comes from a quite unexpected direction.
