Friendship, loyalty, love, ambition and power all feature, before unlooked for danger appears and the villagers have to face a threat to their world.
Readers say –
‘This book is good, really good. Interesting, lively, characters that are utterly believable and set in and around a village with its typical village traditions – flowers, fetes and pub. But there are also the darker undercurrents that are found in all communities.’ Amazon review.
‘A vivid description of both the everyday and the darker aspects of human nature against a wonderfully English background. I look forward to more.’ Amazon review
‘Totally absorbing, this book will delight anyone who is interested in people and their emotions, motivations and relationships.’ Amazon review
‘A fascinating observation of English village life containing all of the pettiness that comes with a small community, fuelled by gossip and jealously. But wait…the small vignettes of kind acts and bravery rise above the mundane and trivial.’ Amazon review
‘J J Anderson deals with the everyday stories of life, death and relationships with such care and compassion but is not afraid of their realities. She catches and expresses beautifully the fleeting half-thoughts that make up so much of our lives, making us uniquely ourselves.’ Amazon review
