My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a really cleverly written book.
How things that were never settled can resurface and come back to haunt you.
A child goes missing, no one knows where, body never found, just a jumper. A jumper stained with blood. The place it was found belonged to a man with some sort of learning disability, did he do it?
Its a small village and tittle tattle is riff. Even if its 30 yrs past.
There are some red herrings along the way which I did miss.

Thirty years on, Elaine Ellis is carrying her mother’s ashes back to Hallow’s End to scatter them in the place that she once called home. Elaine has never been there, but it’s the only place Jean talked about while she was growing up – so it seems as good a place as any.
As Elaine settles into her holiday cottage in the peaceful Devonshire village, she gets to know the locals; family she never knew she had, eccentric and old-fashioned gentry, and new friends where she would least expect them. But she is intrigued by the tale of the missing girl that the village still carries at its heart, and which somehow continues to overshadow them all. Little does she know how much more involved in the mystery she will become…
