SynopsisWhen Lydia celebrates her coming of age, the whole of her Exmoor village celebrated with her. Two men attract her interest that night: handsome, ambitious Gus Pascoe, who covets the land her father farmed; and Wesley Peters, brought up as a strict Methodist, whose seemingly upright religious family hides a terrible secret. Wesley wants only to protect and cherish Lydia, but when his sister becomes the scandal of the neighbourhood and is forced to marry Lydia's brother, Alan, a bitterness grows up between the two families which threatens to keep Lydia and Wesley apart forever. In despair Lydia flees to Bristol, where at last she can free herself from the tragedy and heartbreak of her past life.

A Spy Among Friends - Ben Macintyre
This is another astonishing book from the accomplished biographer, Ben Macintyre, who, with access to newly released MI5 files and previously unseen family papers, and with the cooperation of former officers of MI6 and the CIA, unlocks what is perhaps the last great secret of the Cold War.
Kim Philby was the most notorious British defector and Soviet mole in history. Agent, double agent, traitor and enigma, he betrayed every secret of Allied operations to the Russians in the early years of the Cold War. His two closest friends thought they knew Philby better than anyone, and then discovered they had not known him at all... This is a story of intimate duplicity.
