Published: 2017
Pages: 182
Key Themes: 1940s rural mystery


Experience life on a small Yorkshire farm as Britain recovers from the Second World War in this semi-biographical rural mystery. Moving from town to country is more than a change of scenery for Mary, wife to hard working Tom and mother to three small children. As she struggles with her ever-increasing family, stark living conditions, poverty and loneliness, Mary is drawn to the company of the handsome and convivial Jack Netherfield. The neighbouring farmer flatters Mary and spoils her children, causing friction with the often absent Tom. As events plough even darker furrows, family secrets are overturned and relationships are changed forever.
