Village dramas May 2 2008
By Beverley Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When schoolgirl, Jodie Foot goes missing from a small village in Dorset, nobody is alarmed for a few days as this is something that she's done before. At this same time, local villager, Rachel Turner is working herself into inner torment as she had overheard her husband manufacture an alibi with a friend, when being questioned by the police about Jodie's disappearance. A woman of low self esteem, Rachel is convinced that her husband is continually seeing other women and is terrified that he'll leave her and their two young sons. Academic, Juliet Fairweather is spending the summer in a rented cottage in the village and becomes drawn into the goings on of the small community. While her mother is visiting her, Juliet's long time lover separates from his wife and lands on Juliet's doorstep in a state of helpless confusion, used to being the centre of attention of both his wife and mistress and now suddenly thrust back into the real world without a home or anything but his rather meager salary as a professor at Oxford. It's a very neatly wrapped package of a group of people's lives when an unusual event causes them to examine their own lives and the consequences of their actions upon others.
