This is what Ms Yorke does best -- placid English village life disturbed by tragedy. As stated by the Times "Yorke's territory lies beyond the net curtains of respectable suburbia".
This is a wonderful escapist read. Major Johnson retires to the quiet village of Wiveldon but soon his life will be thrown into chaos by a coincidence of events including the death of a young girl. ( )
