1948-1974 Singer songwriter Tanworth-in-Arden churchyard, Warwickshire, England. Epitaph: 'Now we rise and we are everywhere'. (Suicide?)
The Rev. Merrily Watkins had never wanted a picture-perfect parish — or a huge and haunted vicarage. Nor had she wanted to walk straight into a local dispute over a controversial play about a strange 17th-century clergyman accused of witchcraft. But this is Ledwardine, steeped in cider and secrets. And, as Merrily and her daughter Jane discover, it is a village where horrific murder is an age-old tradition.
