For once, a Young Adult historical romance that does not patronize either its viewers or the past. Flambards is set in the flip side of Heartbreak House, Horseback Hall; an excellent place if one likes riding, killing, and drinking, and a horrible place if one lacks an independent income. But as WW I approaches, there is literally a new spirit in the air. The young protagonists, chosen for their acting ability as well as their looks, are backed up by some of the unobtrusive greats of British theatre and television. One flaw: an insistent earworm of a soundtrack, which will drive you insane if you listen too closely. K.M. Peyton's original books are also highly recommended, but be warned: this is a Young Adult series, not Downton Abbey.

At the beggining i was a little hesitant to watch this series but as it progressed i started to really like it. I like the storyline and the characters and thought it was a sweet story.

Wonderful, well-written story. It has 3 DVDs in this set. At the beginning, you may need to give it a bit of time to get used to this movie's style. The story's characters are well acted! The story and the characters are so mesmerizing that you may find it hard to stop watching until the end! Worth watching, for sure! Great scenery, romance, etc.!

This is what the musical soundtrack sounds like. I wish I were joking; "mom, mom, MOM, mom...Chris-TEEEE-na....la, la, la,....mom, MOM, mom..."
