Ripples On A Pond is the story of Temple Minnis, a placid, privileged, picturesque, affluent village that behind a smooth facade there lurks an old and ugly secret. Thirty years earlier the villagers had conspired to plan and conceal a murder. But now Melissa, a local novelist who discovers that she is dying, is having pangs of conscience and writes the story of what happened so long ago. The result is that lives are turned upside down as members of the village must now face up to their past. Author Madge Swindells is clearly a writer of great storytelling skill and an original imagination as she brings a tale of memorable characters and unexpected plot twists to life in the mind's eye of the reader. Highly recommended reading!
