Stella Gibbons classic 1932 comedic novel is brought to life in this TV adaptation, which finds orphaned London lass Flora Poste (Beckinsdale) trying to take charge of the lives of her very odd country cousins, the Starkadders. The rowdy fami ly and their dilapidated farm are putty in practical Flora's hands as she works to make everybody happy (including herself).
