In Rebecca Shaw's latest scintillating tale of village life, hearts will be broken, families reunited and long-hidden secrets will finally come to light. You can't escape your past. 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?

In Turnham Malpas the past can never remain buried. An old trunk in an attic yields a secret that causes a dilemma for Reverend Peter Harris, and provides meat for gossips.

Greta Jones finally hears from her estranged sons in Canada and is excited about going to visit them, while her husband Vince worries all is not as it seems.
