With flood water washing up Church Lane towards the vicarage and the shop running out of cigarettes it looks like a cold and complex Christmas for Merrily Watkins in an ancient community forced to untangle its own history against the swirling uncertainty of the future.

Phil Rickman lives on the Welsh border with his wife Carol. He has worked as a BBC radio and TV reporter, and he writes and presents the book program "Phil the Shelf" on BBC Radio Wales. He is also the author of the internationally bestselling crime series featuring Merrily Watkins. He is the author of "The Bones of Avalon".From AudioFile:
Emma Powell is the ideal narrator for Rickman's unique series featuring parish priest Merrily Watkins. Powell delivers an authentic accent for the residents of rural Hereford, England, both the educated and those who remain close to the region's superstitions. The always-cool-and-composed Merrily and her passionate daughter, Jane, are fascinating counterpoints to the timely issues that make up these layered mysteries. In this one, as Christmas approaches and a flood threatens, Merrily must weigh right and wrong, and ancient and modern beliefs as she decides how to assist her beloved church and congregation. Powell also skillfully depicts the heavy weather and strongly flowing river that are so much a part of the story's atmosphere. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
