May’s Stony Road
The weather is only the beginning …
Life in Britain was tough in 1947. And then the worst winter of the century arrived.
May Sheppard, mother, foster mother and farmer, can’t help shouldering everyone else’s burdens.
When a threat to her home, family and reputation arrives out of the blue, May is poleaxed but can’t share her anguish.
Cliff, May’s adopted son, loves his country home, his new mum and his brother. He can’t imagine ever leaving the farm. But a ghost from May’s past opens up a new path for him. Old memories are stirred and life starts to unravel.
May is under pressure from all sides. How many secrets can one woman keep? How many battles can she tackle alone? If she loses the fight, the family loses everything.
