A new suspense saga from a much-loved author - 1947. Kindly, unassuming widow Dorrie Resterick continually finds herself confidante to others’ troubles. She would prefer to keep in the background, but life throws her many a mystery, and once she even found a scrap of evidence in a dreadful local crime – the double murder of two villagers. While the police decided the scrap of paper Dorrie brought to them solved the case, Dorrie was never sure – and when new tenants arrive at long-abandoned creepy cottage Merrivale, the site of the murders, their actions inadvertently plunge the whole village into danger . . .

Gloria Cook is the author of several well-loved Cornish novels, including Trevallion, Kilgarthen and Roscarrock, as well as the Pengarron series. She is Cornish born and bred, and lives in Truro. Her favourite pastime is exploring Cornwall's coast and countryside, and historical places. She is married with a grown-up family.Review:
Dorrie Resterick, widowed during the evacuation of Dunkirk, is perfectly happy with her ordinary life in the small Cornish town of Nanviscoe, but she can't deny that she seems prone to stumbling across other people's troubles. These include those of young Finn Templeton and his very pregnant mother, Fiona, down-on-their-luck newcomers to the area after Finn's father is sent to prison for accepting bribes as a public official. Dorrie's niece Verity, who recently broke off her engagement and was disowned by her parents as a result, has also come to stay, and the town is divided over plans for a new town hall. Merrivale, the Templetons' home, was the site of a gruesome double gangland-style execution several years back, and the locals believe it to be haunted. Cook's postwar historical novel deftly introduces a new series that draws on the domestic settings at which she excels, and incorporates into that framework crime, mature love contrasted with teen lust, and a multitude of new beginnings. -- Booklist, November 1, 2011
