  • (1888PressRelease) August 14, 2015 - About the Book : Fish nibbled at the bloated face. To whom does the body in the stream belong? Was violence involved? Fear takes hold and a relaxed way of life becomes suspended during a protracted murder investigation.

    Parley Pole unfolds over eight seasons, it describes: the interlocking lives of rural characters; the workings of the beleaguered parish and ambitious parochial councils; the travails of the care home, principle farmer, lady of the manor and underfunded village hall.

    Included is an elderly romance, a coming of age, a cross cultural marriage and a touching, youthful love affair. Disparate residents unite to resist the threat of a secondary school and a minerals pit being located in their local parish.

    Excerpt from the Book:
    "The settlement has managed to retain a strong sense of identity. Its residents stated overwhelmingly - in a 'parish plan' put together by the parish council - that they 'wished to remain a village separate from the town and other villages.' Located where they are, with a sense of history, convenient but cut off, its inhabitants, with their aspirations, interests and problems, may be taken to represent what is still thought of as a desirable, typically English community.

    There follows a two year account of life in Denton Cheney. Better informed, you may soon be in a position to decide if living in a village is an attractive option, worth the housing cost premium and loss of privacy one has to endure, or whether it is an idyllic image, successfully promoted by Agatha Christie's detectives, Jane Austen's novels, country calendars, chocolate box lids and the English Tourist Office."
