The ninth title in the Colmskirk series, but the fourth and last in the modern series.
This book features an old friend and leading character from the Springdale series, Primula Mary Beaton. She comes to Colmskirk to take up the job of museum curator. Old friends from Colmskirk including Julia and Merran appear but this is really Primula Mary’s story and we learn of the difficulties she experiences in her job, and the series ends with a romance for her.
DFB’s great niece has provided us with a very interesting article on the author’s use of her characters across her series.
