Trouble in the Village by Rebecca Shaw
All is not well in the Rectory of Turnham Malpas...Another delightful story of village life by the ever perceptive Rebecca Shaw.
When the people of Turnham Malpas realise that all is not as it should be between Peter, the rector, and his wife Caroline, the smooth running of the village falters.
Then the appointment of a new verger causes trouble when events from his past return to haunt him, bringing violence and danger to the peace of the village. And then there are the strange goings-on in the church at night; one of the villagers' houses is ransacked; a couple is beaten up...
But troubles in Turnham Malpas are put to rest as Bonfire Night at the Big House arrives and the celebrations unite the village once again.
