A FORGOTTEN PLACE  by Charles Todd


I have long been a fan of the Bess Crawford series and the tenth book did not disappoint. The war was over and Bess is assign to an amputee ward. Where she met Captain Hugh and his men. They all had missing legs or arms as they had been ambushed in the last few days of the war. It wipe out most of the men in platoon. Bess becomes found the men who were from Welch and work in the cold mines.They can no longer work in the mines and there no other jobs for them. Bess on a ten day furlough travels to the Welsh village. She is dismay to find all but two are dead and Captain Hugh has moved to the Welsh coast to live with his sister-in-law.

She travels to the village and becomes strand there. Bess must know the answer to several questions in order to leave the village. What is village’s secret? Who is beating up the men? Why won’t the village call in the police/army? The ending was tricky and it caught me unaware. I highly recommend this book and and series.
