To Have and to Hold

Brian Harding has a life of idyllic bliss deep in the cosy bosom of the beautiful English countryside. But his tranquil existence is shattered when he suffers a fall while out horse riding. The accident cripples him, but there is worse news to come when his doctor tells him that he has only a short time to live. Although madly in love with his wife, June, Brian knows that she really loves their friend, Max, and decides to act horribly towards her so that she will turn against him and plan for her future without him. Then, matters are complicated by the arrival on the scene of Max’s long-lost daughter, Peggy.
