Margaret Christopher lives in the Charente Department of France with Nina, her dog and five cats. Her major interests are gardening, observing the local scene and of course writing, the latter conveniently taking up much of the time which she should be devoting to housework!
Alone in her house at night, a woman sees her back door latch start to move. Who or what is out there? Another has found evidence of a tragedy. What really happened? A chance visit while on holiday in France sets in motion a chain of events which will affect three generations of one family.
In every one of the first eight short stories reality is not what it appears to be on the surface.

We were to be surprised how much amusement this engendered, particularly with regard to the curious behaviour of some of our compatriots.
