Publisher's Summary

With her glossy blonde hair, natural good looks and fashionable clothes, Fiona Norwood, the rector's new wife, has caused quite a stir amongst the close-knit parish of Aberthwaite. For this is rural Yorkshire and Fiona's new-fangled ideas of singing more modern hymns and setting up a Young Wives' Club do not go down well. But Fiona is hiding a secret in her past. With gossip and rumour rife within the community, it can only be a matter of time before Fiona's secret is out - and the revelations and heartache that ensue will have unforeseen consequences for more than one member of the parish.

    "Pleasant listen"

    This book was a pleasant listen, which I wanted to hear the conclusion of but the storyline was a little slow and the characters didn't capture me quite as much as perhaps in a Katie Flynn novel. It's set after the Second World War, and the story does jump about quite frequently in terms of the timeline. Without giving away any of the storyline, it was intriguing hearing how a small community in the sixties dealt with gossip and what was considered a big deal back then that isn't now. There are some likeable characters but they often got left behind as the story picked back up in the present time. A little predictably in ending perhaps, but glad I listened to the finish.
