Content descriptions

General Note: Includes reader's guide (pages 319-330).
Summary: For thirty years, Howard and Deborah Morgan have poured all their energy and modest savings into Stoneyridge, a smallholding deep in the English moors. To help with finances, they decide to turn Stoneyridge into a bed-and-breakfast. But a sudden stroke leaves Howard incapacitated and Deborah overwhelmed. Her main joy now comes in the form of a brief weekly email from their successful son, who lives abroad. Then, late one evening, two men arrive needing a room for the night--and set off a chain of events that uncovers the relics of old tragedies. Through it all, Stoneyridge quietly hides the bitter and transformative truth.
