This extraordinary roller coaster ride into deepest England begins as a mysterious thriller, when an unknown woman arrives at an intriguing village in the dead of night. The novel turns into an outrageous rural fantasy when the woman’s search for love draws her into other lives on vivid, often conflicting journeys of their own. The satire of class awareness and traditional whimsy of classic British comedy eventually take center stage, much like a modern Upstairs, Downstairs, reinvented for the anxieties and sensibilities of today.
