The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. With wit, wisdom, and a manifest affection for rural life, Rebecca Shaw draws the reader into the beguiling world of Turnham Malpas, where still waters run deep, and strong currents tug unseen beneath the surface. An old trunk stashed away for years in the attic yields a worrying secret that causes a dilemma for Reverend Peter Harris, and provides meat for the village gossips. Fran Craddock from the village store is thinking of settling down with nice, reliable Alex Harris – until Chris Templeton, the heartbreaker from her past, returns to the village, intent on catching her attention. Greta Jones finally hears from her estranged sons in Canada after fifteen years and is excited at the prospect of going to visit them, while her husband Vince worries all is not as it seems. An engaging, heart-warming tale of human nature and human foibles, in a small town where the past can never remain buried.
~ Susie Cogan

Synopsis

Village Rumours by Rebecca Shaw

At least that's what the residents of Turnham Malpas would say...While clearing out the rectory's loft, Reverend Peter Harris makes an unsettling discovery and a dark secret is exposed that soon sets tongues wagging in the village. Having received a letter from the sons she hasn't heard from in 15 years, local gossip Greta Jones is delighted at the prospect of seeing them after all this time - despite her husband's misgivings. And Craddock Fitch's unruly grandchildren, newly arrived in the village, are causing not a little trouble for the townsfolk. Meanwhile Fran Charter-Plackett has a difficult decision to make. Her parents would like to see her settled with kind and reliable Alex Harris. But when Chris Templeton, the man whom Fran once lost her heart to, returns to the village, it seems he is all set to steal her affections once more. Is Chris really a changed man? And will Fran finally go with her heart or her head?
