Summary

Mavis Gaunt spent time in the village of Shipleigh, as a wartime evacuee, finding it a heavenly retreat. But it is not until her 20s that she decides to head back. Frances, Tom and Robert Upcott are reclusive siblings from a local farm. When Mavis returns to the village, she and Frances strike up an unlikely friendship. But a tragic sequence of events is set to turn her heaven into a living hell. Mavis is 70 when Eve and her young son, Archie, turn up in the village. In revealing the truth about what happened, she is able to answer Eve’s questions about her own family and, in summoning them, Mavis can finally begin to lay her own ghosts to rest.
