An Inventory of Heaven, Paperback / softback Book

An Inventory of Heaven Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

As a young woman, Mavis Gaunt leaves post-war London to make a new life for herself in rural Devon, where she spent a few blissful months of her childhood as an evacuee.

Living alone in the verdant hamlet of Shipleigh, she believes she's found a heaven on earth - until a violent tragedy brings trouble to paradise, and turns Mavis's idyllic solitude into a tormented, guarded isolation. Decades later, the arrival of a newcomer to the village forces Mavis to make a final reckoning: should she take her horrible secret to the grave? Or, should she summon up her ghosts and, in doing so, lay them to rest?

An Inventory of Heaven is a lyrical and intimate meditation on the rural life, falling in love and the long passing of time.
