Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 191045317X, Paperback)Who wants a respectable retirement anyway? Not Ted Prescott, genial visitor to Mailliot le Bois, here on an impulsive mission to seek out his past whilst heroically diminishing the sleepy French town's stocks of red wine. But once the locals discover Ted's authentic renditions of regional hero Frederic Debreu's songs, life is suddenly not so straightforward for the stage-shy Derbyshire guitar-maker. Reluctantly persuaded that he might help put their town back on the map, Ted finds himself billed as humble French farm labourer 'Edouard Prescote'. Nonplussed as his self-conscious performances strike a chord, Ted finds himself drawn into a web of well-intentioned deceit that he finds increasingly hard to unravel. Haunted by the loss of his missing brother, and with the hopes of an entire community riding on him, it soon becomes clear that there are other, more important things that he hasn't mentioned to his loved ones...
