The village school of Turnham Malpas is to get a new head teacher. At first sight, Kate Pascoe seems ideal. But when she introduces meditation classes and tree-hugging, the villagers begin to think again. A strange malaise afflicts the whole village and a sudden, shocking death plunges the village into a state of superstitious dread. And always at the eye of the storm is the head teacher: Kate Pascoe. As May Day approaches, the Rector, Peter Harris, makes it his job to discover the truth as he tries to restore the village to its former tranquil ways.Rebecca Shaw has written another compelling story in the acclaimed Tales from Turnham Malpas series - beguiling novels that add a liberal dash of darkness to the warmth and humour of village life.More

NOTHING like a Joanna Trollope or Maeve Binchy nov
I found this in a search for books similar to those by Joanna Trollope or Maeve Binchy. This was a huge disappointment. The plot wanders, there is no character development. Every so often, right in the middle of the 'action', the reading stops and three distant bells and music are heard. What?
The performance couldn't fix the bad writing, but really, the bells and music are just terrible
