Two newcomers arrive in Turnham Malpas, creating drama and upheaval. Another warm, witty and lively tale of village life from bestselling author Rebecca Shaw.

Ford and Mercedes Barclay have decided to spend their twilight years in the lovely village of Turnham Malpas - but will these two newcomers be made welcome?

Meanwhile, a letter arrives at the village rectory that causes consternation. The rector's twin children have never had contact with their birth mother. But now, finally, she wishes to build a relationship with them. After so many years of estrangement, what should they do...?
