Under the surface of an outwardly successful, highly educated family lies quiet suffering and spiritual isolation.


Mark and Emma have an unarticulated problem within their marriage for which neither feels able to seek help. A business trip to India provides a healing process for Mark while an encounter with an old friend on Dartmoor does the same for Emma.


Self-effacing Uncle Jonathan, a retired vicar, can no longer endure to live with his wife. He fears the harshness of social judgement and is tormented with feelings of inadequacy. However, he knows he must act and cope with any resulting difficulties.  He tries hard to make a success of his new life but his estranged wife is determined to keep him in a state of wretchedness. Then a miracle occurs.


Mary, an attractive widow living in Cheltenham, has an unscrupulous son with designs on her wealth. Frightened by the prospect of being bullied into signing a document which would hand over her house but, at the same time, desperate for discretion and avoidance of shame, she turns to her new neighbours, Mark and Emma, for advice.

Vicky Winchester was born in France in 1949. She grew up in Guyana, Iraq, India and England. She qualified as a State Registered Nurse in 1971. She has since travelled extensively but now lives with her husband in Devon and is free to indulge a deep love for gardening and the domestic arts generally.
