Eternity Ring, is one of my favorites in Wentworth's 'Miss Silver' mystery series. Beginning with a snapshot during WWII of a long line of civilian refugees fleeing German invaders, a British soldier pretends to help, but instead steals and flees with the valuables of one of the exhausted refugee - a pre-war very wealthy woman.
Flash forward several years post war, to a small English village and, you guessed it, someone Is murdered and Miss Silver steps in to help figure out what is going on.
Wentworth offers consistently well crafted novels that usually follow particular formulas and themes, yet offer adequate variety in particulars of setting, people, and of course the why, who, and how of the murder.
There is a reason writers of this genre have come to be considered 'cozy mystery' writers. They are generally, gently engaging. Soothing.
I'm not sure why I find Wentworth so intriguing. Wouldn't have thought it possible and am not a 'cozy' fan in general, with quite a few exceptions, to be honest. More on Wentworth later.

I normally love the Miss Silver series, but this one lacks something. I found myself having to keep going back over chapter upon chapter because my mind kept wandering. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but it just wasn't her best work, in my opinion.
I would recommend it to any die-hard Miss Silver fans, but don't start the series with this book.
