‘A Gem of Interwoven Tales’ – five stars on Amazon. Five stars on Goodreads. The fifth to the eighth tales in The Village; A Year in Twelve Tales, the next slice of village life.
At May-time a gardening competition re-kindles an old rivalry amid mourning and bereavement. The June wedding seasons sees a quartet of couples making difficult romantic decisions. There is skull-duggery and dastardly deeds at the Summer Fete. Real violence erupts with an influx of transient newcomers as the harvesting begins. The next four inter-linked stories are about life in the village and its wide cast of characters, as four generations of the Marshall family negotiate the hazards of their own family saga, while, around them babies are born, plots are hatched, romance blooms and marriages founder.
The world turns and Summer moves towards Autumn as the lives of the villagers play out against the changing seasons. Friendship, loyalty, love, ambition and power all feature, before unlooked for danger appears and the villagers have to face a threat to their world.’
