'I've come about the bodies. I know who they are.'
Mary is eighty-six years old, and she's tired of being quiet.
She has a story to tell, and she's only going to tell it once, so she won't be rushed.
Especially as it's not just a story, it's a confession.
Because Mary has a dark secret, buried decades before. And while William, the nice young constable, might think she just wants someone to talk to, everything she says forces him to confront his own difficult past.
A unique and poignant novel about passion, regret and heartbreak, set during one of the most tumultuous periods of modern British history.
