All the inhabitants of Thrush Green are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Mrs Curdle's fair - especially as rumour has it that this may be the last time it comes. Molly Piggott is hoping to meet again the young man who swept her off her feet the previous year - but will he want to see her? Meanwhile village life continues with all its ups and downs. The arrival of young Doctor Lovell seems to meet with general approval, but Mrs Curdle is deeply worried and must seek help from her old friend Doctor Bailey.
