It is harvest time at Lark Rise and all the families are working in the fields. However, a measles epidemic sweeps through the county and as the mothers must stay at home to look after the sick children, the harvest is in danger of being so delayed that it cannot be saved. Daniel, come to tell Laura that he is leaving to work in Cambridge, deliberately gives up his new job to stay on and organize isolation and to rally the people of Candleford to come to Lark Rise to act as field workers and nurses.

This is beautiful!
14 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All I can say is wow! This is the best episode so far, in my opinion! I love this series and look forward to each new episode as if it were a long-awaited and welcome feast. It seems to get better and better.

The portrayal of the gleaners and reapers is moving; the scenery is beautiful and the folk music is so fitting. It makes me feel like I'm really there, like I'm a part of that time and place. Another moving scene is when Emma brings the baby to Alfie after Archie dies. When Alfie starts singing the song, it breaks my heart. It's so tender. I really don't care if the TV program is not true to the book as some people say, and I don't care if it isn't completely realistic. It makes me feel good to watch it, and I'm enthralled! I'm excited to know that other people love it too.

I know a series like this would never last in the states because American viewers have been fed a steady diet of extreme violence and trash by the media that has dulled their senses; they no longer have a taste for what is beautiful and good. Very sad. I'm grateful for this program. I hope it lasts for years! Thanks BBC and UK for sharing!
