Daphne Neville - 2014
The Swinging Sixties are at their height and Trengillion in Cornwall is much changed since the early 1950s. Charles, the last of Trengillion’s prominent family, has died, and Penwynton House, his prestigious former home, is up for sale, causing much consternation amongst villagers as to the future of the rambling, neglected building. Deep inside Bluebell Woods, the children of the village, wrapped in a world of pop stars, music and fashion, spend much of the school holidays playing in and around their makeshift den. And at The Ringing Bells Inn, Landlord Frank Newton and his wife, Dorothy, concede it is time to think of retirement. Meanwhile, visitors come and go and life goes on as normal. Or does it? The strange behaviour of some visitors raise many questions. The death of a quiet, unassuming holidaymaker in a subsequent supposed accident causes much gossip, and the evolving summer turns out to be anything but normal. Sea, Sun, Cads and Scallywags is the third in a series of seven books located in Trengillion on Cornwall’s beautiful Lizard Peninsula.
