Choosing to sell the farmhouse has consequences no one saw coming…

A Week in Winter is Marcia Willett’s engrossing and sympathetic portrayal of a family in turmoil. The perfect read for fans of Katie Fforde and Veronica Henry.

‘Wonderfully evocative’ – Devon Life

When Maudie Todhunter finally decides she must sell Moorgate, her beautiful farmhouse on the edge of Bodmin Moor, she anticipates strong objections from her family – particularly from Selina, her stepdaughter, with whom she has never seen eye to eye.
