‘This may just have saved my life…’ The hurried scribble in the dusty visitors’ book catches Gwen’s eye. Just like that, she is drawn into a mystery at the heart of the pretty village of Hopley…
When a family tragedy strikes, Gwen Stanley finds herself suddenly heartbroken and alone. With nowhere to turn, she retreats to her Aunt Mary’s house in Hopley, a crumbling little village deep in the heart of the English countryside. Wandering the winding lanes and daydreaming about what could have been, Gwen feels lost for the first time in her life.
Until one day she pushes through the creaking doors of a tiny stone church at the edge of the village, empty and forgotten by nearly everyone. There she stumbles on a book full of local secrets and is drawn into unravelling an old mystery at the heart of the close-knit community.
When Gwen encounters handsome local artist Jarvis, she instantly feels a connection. She shares the book of secrets with him and together they go in search of a woman who could be key to solving the mystery – and to helping them save the little village church.
But just as Gwen begins to fall for Jarvis, she discovers something unexpected about his past. Can she really trust him? And will the mystery surrounding the book of secrets draw them together – or break Gwen’s fragile heart?
An utterly unputdownable story – such a treat from the first page to the last – from Richard and Judy bestselling author Tracy Rees. Perfect for fans of Katie Fforde, Lucy Diamond and Sheryl Woods, and anybody longing for the ultimate feel-good, cozy read!
