You Owe Me Five Farthings
“It’s no good, Rose. I’ve tried, and I know I can’t go on––knowing all the time that you’re there. So near––and yet you’re not for me.”
Rose is in despair as her marriage disintegrates and the love of her life Simon prepares to leave the village. Meanwhile Jeremy Swanson, the local vicar, preoccupied with his own troubles, fails to perceive the dangers posed by his son’s obsession with a mysterious ancient book.
We return to the parish of St Martin-on-the Hill for more page-turning mystery romance in this sequel to St Martin’s Summer.
