A wounded soldier and a rector's daughter discover strange goings-on in the sleepy village of Kurland St. Mary in Catherine Lloyd's charming Regency-set mystery debut. Major Robert Kurland has returned to the quiet vistas of his village home to recuperate from the horrors of Waterloo. However injured his body may be, his mind is as active as ever. Too active, perhaps. When he glimpses a shadowy figure from his bedroom window struggling with a heavy load, the tranquil façade of the village begins to loom sinister. . . Unable to forget the incident, Robert confides in his childhood friend, Miss Lucy Harrington. As the dutiful daughter of the widowed rector, following up on the major's suspicions offers a welcome diversion--but soon presents real danger. Someone is intent on stopping their investigation. And in a place where no one locks their doors, a series of thefts and the disappearance of two young serving girls demands explanation. . . As Robert grapples with his difficult recovery, he and Lucy try to unearth the dark truth lurking within the village shadows, and stop a killer waiting to strike again. . .

As wedding bells chime in Kurland St. Mary, a motley group of visitors descends on the village—and with a murderer on the prowl, some of them may not be returning home… Lucy Harrington has returned to Kurland St. Mary to help with her friend Sophia Giffin’s wedding. But her homecoming is made disagreeable by the presence of Major Robert Kurland, whose bungled proposal has ruffled Lucy’s composure, and a meddling widow who has designs on her father, the village rector. Wary of the cloying Mrs. Chingford from the start, Lucy has doubts about the busybody’s intentions with her father. But everyone else seems to think they make an ideal match—until the courtship is curtailed when Mrs. Chingford is found dead at the bottom of a staircase. It’s clear that it wasn’t an accident, and in hopes of finding the culprit, Lucy and Robert call a truce and begin scrutinizing the wedding guests. But the widow left behind plenty of enemies, and when one of them is the next to turn up dead, Lucy and Robert discover that the truth is far more scandalous than anyone could have imagined…

As Miss Lucy Harrington, daughter of the village rector, and Major Sir Robert Kurland plan their nuptials, the major is beginning to wonder if he’ll ever hear wedding bells.

In the English village of Kurland St. Mary, few things are worse than having one’s reputation besmirched. A struggling marriage is one. Murder is another . . . Three years have passed since Major Sir Robert Kurland and Lucy Harrington, the rector's daughter, became husband and wife. Having established a measure of contentment among the local gentry, the couple lately have found an unsettling distance grown between them. But when the small-village peace is disrupted by an anonymous letter accusing Lucy of witchcraft, her as yet unfulfilled desire to be a mother becomes the least of her worries, especially after she learns she is not the only one to have received such a malicious letter. Speculation only escalates when the village schoolteacher, Miss Broomfield, is discovered murdered at her classroom desk. Was the unlikeable teacher the letter writer, and if so, who killed her and why? Despite her husband’s objections, Lucy offers to help out at the school until a replacement can be found, hoping the children might inadvertently reveal a clue, but by doing so she may be putting her own life at risk . . .

Wie Frauen in schweren Zeiten durch Singen ihre eigene Stimme fanden Inspiriert von der Geschichte ihrer Großmutter erzählt die britische Autorin Jennifer Ryan in ihrem Debüt »Der Frauenchor von Chilbury« von einer Gruppe starker Frauen zu Beginn des Zweiten Weltkriegs in einem kleinen Ort in England. 1940: Als immer mehr Männer nach London gehen oder eingezogen werden, beschließt der Pfarrer von Chilbury in der Grafschaft Kent, den Chor der Gemeinde aufzulösen. Die Frauen sind zutiefst enttäuscht. Was bleibt ihnen im schwierigen Kriegsalltag noch? Doch dann kommt die Musikprofessorin Primrose Trent aus London im Ort unter. Sie ist der Überzeugung, dass Musik gerade in schwierigen Zeiten wichtig ist und schlägt die Gründung eines reinen Frauenchors vor. Die Idee stößt auf Skepsis. Ein Chor ganz ohne Bässe und Tenöre? Aber Primrose gibt nicht auf: Mit Energie und Leidenschaft treibt sie ihr Projekt voran – ihr Enthusiasmus und die wundervolle Musik, die entsteht und die sie sich selbst nie zugetraut hätten, überzeugen die Frauen und richten sie auf. Der Chor hilft ihnen, ihre eigene Stimme zu finden. Fünf grundverschiedene Frauen und Mädchen erzählen von ihrem Leben im Dorf und davon, wie der Krieg ihr Leben verändert – wie er Verlust, Trauer und Angst erzeugt, aber doch nicht verhindern kann, dass auch Freundschaft und Liebe entstehen.
