This is the fifth novel portraying the life of a Lord family member, and it brings us up to date, well to 2010. Peter Lord is turning twenty-one, and as the heir to Fotheringham Manor he needs to decide both the future direction for the estate and a future for his own life. While pursuing his own future in green energy sources Peter tries an experiment on the estate to diversify the present list of activities. This change, this attempt to help a group of dis-advantaged teenagers by giving them a second chance, proves particularly challenging. Family and friends all rally round to minimise the damage and in so doing Peter unearths a previous unsolved mystery at Fotheringham. In the end Peter decides he intends to launch "Renewable Energy Expertise" as a producing and consulting company to help you help the planet. Quite some change from the rural woodland that was Fotheringham Manor in the last century.
