A trio of outsiders - two men and a dangerously magnetic woman - arrives on the woodland borders and puts up a make-shift camp. That same night, the local manor house is set on fire. Over the course of 7 days, Walter Thirsk sees the harvest blackened by smoke and fear, the new arrivals cruelly punished, and his neighbours held captive on suspicion of witchcraft. But something even darker is at the heart of his story, and he will be the only man left to tell it.

Review by ABC Book Group. Pastoral, visceral and timeless. Some thought it was a little slow and lacked plot but most admired the quality of the prose and the impressionistic quality of the story telling. Gory and bloody tale of a community once isolated and settled being blown apart by economic change and social division. Walter was a survivor. Score 3.5/5
