Publisher's Summary

'What could be more important than finding the truth?'

Wiltshire, 1922. Fifteen-year old Pudding Cartwright has begun the career she always wanted, as 'girl groom' to the Hadleigh family's horses at Manor Farm. Irene Hadleigh is struggling to adjust to her new life in sleepy Slaughterford, having married Alistair to escape a scandal in London. At a loss to occupy herself, Irene sets about restyling Manor Farm, and during the work the chance finding of a strange object hidden away in the house for years will change everything.

When somebody close to both of them is murdered, Pudding and Irene are thrown together to seek out the identity of the killer in their midst, unaware of just how deep the roots of the crime lie. During a hot, humid summer of grief, betrayal and misapprehensions, they will uncover truths neither of them could ever have foreseen.

Read by Anna Bentinck.

    "A fantastic listen"

    This is a brilliant book, a gentle start but before you have time to realise you are thoroughly absorbed. A tale of love, trust, respect, family ties, betrayal and the the worst traits of human nature. It kept me hooked till the end. The characters are believable, human, somewhat flawed and warm. The twists and turns are the thing that makes this an incredible story, it was not the predictable storyline I had expected. Heartbreaking on times but highly recommend.

    "Beautifully written with a great story"

    This is a highly original book. The descriptions of the Wiltshire countryside are highly evocative, and the principle characters are well drawn. The story line is original with some interesting twists that I didn’t see coming. Anna Bentinck is a great narrator. A five star experience in every way!

    "Good story but a problem for the listener?"

    I enjoyed the story but felt it was very convoluted until I realised part way through that the Clemmie /Eli element of the narrative was in another time period. I haven’t seen the book layout but I wonder whether, if it is not specific with a change of date or other visible clues, that the reader could let the listener know of some time transition. It was confusing.

    "Loved it"

    I loved the gentle narration of this interesting and complex story and the character within it. The end had me completely surprised with the twist of story/character - loved it. Will definitely seek out other stories narrated by Anna Bentinck.

    "Many a twist and turn"

    Great to listen to a book where you can't see the plot coming from a mile away very refreshing but still making complete sense sad in place and funny in others highly recommended

    "A Wonderful Story - do listen or read it!"

    I wasn’t sure that I would like this story at first, but my goodness me, I couldn’t stop listening to it. What a great story with all its twists and turns and read,with all the different voices, so well by Anna Bentinck.
