Cast the First Stone
by Margaret Thornton

A heart-warming saga set in the Yorkshire Dales in the early sixties

With her natural good looks, fashionable clothes and lavish use of make-up, Fiona Norwood, the rector’s new wife, has caused quite a stir amongst the close-knit parish community of Aberthwaite. But Fiona is hiding a secret in her past, and with the gossip and rumour rife it can only be a matter of time before Fiona’s secret is out – and the revelations and heartache that ensue will have unforeseen consequences for more than one member of the parish.


“Thornton’s writing style and the narration. . .make us care for the characters. One can almost hear the Yorkshire-accented dialogue. The desire to know what happens to the protagonists propels us towards the ending. Recommended.”
