More than Ashes

A coastal community struggling with wartime fears and doubts.

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 with suspicion and accusations?
