Description: 15th century Oakham; in Somerset; a tiny village cut off by a big river with no bridge. When a man is swept away by the river in the early hours of Shrove Saturday; an explanation has to be found: accident; suicide or murder? The village priest; John Reve; is privy to many secrets in his role as
confessor. But will he be able to unravel what happened to the victim; Thomas Newman; the wealthiest; most capable and industrious man in the village? And what will happen if he can�euro;�t?
Moving back in time towards the moment of Thomas
Newmans death; the story is related by Reve an extraordinary creation; a patient shepherd to his wayward flock; and a man with secrets of his own to keep. Through his eyes; and his indelible voice; Harvey creates a medieval world entirely tangible in its immediacy.
