At the same time the story engages the reader’s emotions. There’s a varied cast of characters who each arouse different responses from the reader: the food inspector Arthur Bantry is easy to despise; the apparently helpless Miss Pettit is an enigma, the affable police detective Bob Robbins is impossible not to like and hardworking, burdened Maisie Hawkins illicits empathy. As the reader tries to figure out what’s going on in the village, she responds to the characters and can’t help becoming caught up in their lives.
As a mystery, an historical fiction and a great read this book hits the mark. I can easily recommend it to any reader who enjoys a good tale.
"...well crafted and details never go astray....That it is based on a series of actual happenings makes it all the more eye-opening. It is a grand portrayal of small village life, the goings-on of generations ago that still affect the living as if they happened yesterday"
