Originally published: 2013.
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.

Camberley Morning Reading Group. A beautiful evocation of village life during the time of the enclosures. Archaic, slow-paced style of language is maintained throughout, reminding us of how far we have lost touch with nature and a way of life governed by the seasons. 7/10
