Village Life

ByAlex Y. Ferguson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Charlie Henderson, schoolgirl of thirteen, lives in London and attends a failing Academy. Her younger brother, Ralph, is a spoilt brat. Her parents quarrel constantly. Michael, a solicitor, hates his work and brings that unhappiness home. Eileen, her mother, is trapped in their damp, cramped house. The only sunshine in Charlie’s life is her friendship with Sarah Shaw. One disastrous day, that friendship is broken forever. Then a miracle changes everything. Michael is offered a job with a firm in Leicester, and they move to The Crooked Cottage in Fenton Parva, a charming village. The villagers are welcoming and Charlie is happier than she ever thought to be. Her mother loves the cottage and village life. Her father is happy in his new position. Ralph is as irritating as ever. Life for the Hendersons is transformed. But, in the paradise of Fenton Parva, there begins a series of events that leads Charlie to a terrifying revelation. Do not read this book in an old dark house alone at night.
