about

Peggy is eighty and the family are having a birthday party. Her son's gift of a beautifully crafted notebook comes with a request… Peggy's not so keen on telling her own story, but each of her family and neighbours has a story to tell, revealing not just Peggy's life but that of her village, tucked beneath Cader Idris on the southern fringes of Snowdownia. Bookended by Peggy's own shocking testimony, each chapter has a different voice and a different take on events, from the jolly fat woman who is feeding not just Peggy but her own sense of emptiness, to the generous shopkeeper and his young son, who has had his eye on Peggy for a long time, and Peggy's best friend, who's not sure she's cut out for marriage to the church and its curator. As the village voices fill out the picture of life in Llanegryn, slowly the reader realises that all is not well, and that Peggy's eccentricities have a terrible dark secret hidden behind them - and not just that she was a neglected child.
