Summary (From the publisher):

The Platts move to Chipping Hanbury and begin to look after the village and its startled inhabitants. They look after it so well that very soon people are wishing they would go and find another village to look after. The only thing that keeps them going is the thought that soon the Platts will decide to look after Daniel Emanuel. Luckily, Daniel Emanuel is not very impressed with the Platt's efforts to tidy his life.
