More than Ashes

A novella in the Sussex Crime series, featuring the characters from Tamarisk Bay

When a community is threatened does it come together or split apart?

In this second novella of the Sussex Crime series the people of Tamarisk  Bay are learning to deal with tragedy.  It is one year after the start of the Second World War and coastal communities are having to cope with relentless German bombings.  Hardship is affecting families on every level, from food rationing to clothing shortages.

Everyone is trying their best to make do.  Then an item of clothing turns up in the Latimer household, just a short time after a gentleman’s outfitters is bombed. Nearby towns and cities are experiencing looting on a grand scale and there is talk of severe punishments being handed out – a lifetime in prison; maybe even hanging.  

Has a crime been committed?  Can Sergeant Snow root out the truth before the close community of Tamarisk Bay is split apart by suspicion and accusations?

Look out for the other novellas in the Sussex Crime series – Divided we FallWaiting for Sunshine  and The Harvest – to discover the stories behind the Sussex Crime characters in these heart-warming tales.
