Description:
Midwinter in the early years of this century. A teenage girl on holiday has gone missing in the hills at the heart of England. The villagers are called up to join the search, fanning out across the moors as the police set up roadblocks and a crowd of news reporters descends on their usually quiet home. Meanwhile, there is work that must still be done: cows milked, fences repaired, stone cut, pints poured, beds made, sermons written, a pantomime rehearsed. The search for the missing girl goes on, but so does everyday life. As it must.

Reviews
The group was split on this book, some enjoyed it and were not bothered that there was no resolution, others preferred to have an outcome which reflected the storyline. The greatest split seemed to be in the actual way the book was physically written - block pages of script with no paragraphs, dialogue etc. Background reading proved informative ie. 13 was an arbitrary number but then had a huge influence - 13 birds, 13 animals, 13 visits by a blackbird, 13 chapters, 13 years - 13 months (lunar) in a year. It engendered a great deal of discussion! People loved his descriptive writing.
