Summary
Leslie Titmuss has never quite fit in among the denizens of Rapstone Village. Socially awkward and hailing from a humble background, he nonetheless aspires to the highest levels of society. He is ready to do whatever it takes to get there. For much of his life, Titmuss was taken under the wing of the kindly Reverend Simcox. This caused little concern for the clergyman's sons - that is, until their father dies and Titmuss inherits the family fortune. Follows the families' history from WWII to the height of the Thatcher era
