SynopsisWhen Abigail Eliot accepts the job of teacher-in-charge at the village school of Linstowel, she tells herself that sheer hard work in this isolated corner of North Devon will help her to forget that ghastly accident that robbed her of her husband and son. But there is another reason for her return to Linstowel - Daniel Enys, but he has changed. He is embittered, almost violent. And Abigail cannot escape him. Not only because his sons are in her care at school, but because there is a curious bond of sympathy between them. A sympathy that flourishes in spite of village gossip in spite of Abigail's own sound common sense.
