Set in 1952, this story begins when three people meet in a churchyard. One is a local farmer, Ben Morris, walking through the churchyard from his farmhouse. The other two, Lucy and Eileen Baker, are mother and daughter, bringing flowers to lay at the resting place of a man by the name of Barney Davidson. There is an air of mystery about them that greatly intrigues Ben.

When the older woman stumbles, Ben offers to help. The offer is refused, but in that moment of contact with the younger of the two women, he finds himself oddly drawn to her.

When a handbag is found, Ben is nominated to return it to an address found inside. He goes to an old Edwardian house that is rumoured to have been a place of ill-repute many years ago. For reasons unknown, this rumour is vigorously denied by an elder who has lived in the hamlet of Salford all her life. When Ben returns with the handbag and is invited into the house, he is caught up in circumstances that change his life forever.

The extraordinary events centre on Ben and Eileen. As the story unfolds, the years fall away, and unsuspecting people are drawn together from both sides of the Atlantic. At long last, the real truth about Barney Davidson is revealed. He was indeed a man amongst men. What he did changed lives in ways that could never have been imagined.

    " Just long and boring at times, if shorter it would have been more entertaining, but it dragged on. I'd skip a few pages here and there because they were just descriptions... "

    " Typical Josephine Cox fodder: a harmless, non-challenging read to give my mind a bit of a rest between the crime thrillers "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nova | 12/4/2010

    " Lame! unbelievable characters; no plot to speak of and long paragraphs describing the menu for dinner or afternoon tea. Didn't get much past half way till I started speed reading/skimming to get to the end "

    " A gentle drama listened to audio book otherwise may not have finished it. Not really my genre but quite enjoyable in the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 3/4/2009

    " As good as the prequel the journey - how ever just seems a little rushed, some of the scenario's needed to be developed more towards the end, it all seemed to finish a bit abruptly. otherwise a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lizzee | 2/26/2009

    " I loved it - a touching story, even if it did remind me slightly of Far From the Madding Crowd - but I think that was just the setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 12/27/2008

    " I borrowed this from my mum and straight after reading it I wanted to read the follow-up.
    Got really involved in it.
    The storyline and characters were well thought out.
    Would definitely recommend this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tally | 12/21/2008

    " So glad to get this book finished. Totally dumb that its logical for a man to become a drunk and sleep with other women so his family will hate him. I can't believe the author might think this was a nobler choice than any others. "
