Harrison was a powerful man. He owned the vast acres of Windom, a sheep property that had begun with his grandfather Glenford, in 1844.
He was head of his family. He had two sons, Jonathon and Kenneth who would take over Windom when he was gone; and two daughters, Beatrice and Margaret.
In many ways he thought of his children as an extension of his property. They were the next generation; the blood line under which Windom would continue into the future just as it had always done. He planned their lives towards that purpose.
But fate had a strange way of intervening in the best laid schemes. A World War; an unhappy love affair; the devotion of a heart to another duty and the destructive hand of nature would bring changes he could never have foreseen.
