Five stars on Amazon. Five stars on Goodreads. Readers are asking for the next slice of English village life.

The fifth to the eighth tales in The Village; A Year in Twelve Tales.

At May-time a gardening competition re-kindles an old rivalry amid mourning and bereavement. The June wedding season sees a quartet of couples making difficult romantic decisions. There is skull-doggery and dastardly deeds at the Summer Fete. Real violence erupts with an influx of transient newcomers as the harvesting begins. The next four inter-linked stories are about life in the village and its wide cast of characters, as four generations of the Marshall family negotiate the hazards of their own family saga, while, around them babies are born, plots are hatched, romance blooms and marriages founder.

Check out the reviews on,, Goodreads and Riffle.
