Publisher's Summary

One night is enough to swallow a lifetime of lives.

When Ruth Ardingly and her family first drive up from London and view The Well, they are enchanted by a jewel of a place. But the locals suspect foul play in its verdant fields and drooping fruit trees, and Ruth becomes increasingly isolated as she struggles to explain why her land flourishes whilst her neighbours' produce withers and dies.

Fearful of envious locals and suspicious of those who seem to be offering help, Ruth grows less and less sure whom she can trust.

    Story
    "So many loose end! Such drivel!"

    This is a thoroughly frustrating novel. The author tries to be clever by adopting the past/present juxtaposition of past and present and manages to confuse and impede the flow. The heroine is a stupid woman who is totally unsympathetic. The other characters are cardboard. There are many loose ends. I read it because someone had recommended it for our book club. During our discussion, not one person had anything positive to say about. This book is certainly neither entertaining nor educational. A total waste of time and brain cells.
