Nothing much ever happens in Monksford. Even so, reporter Jemma Durham dreams of the story that will take her from the small Monksford Gazette to a national newspaper. Then the town revives the tradition of the medieval mystery plays that were performed across England hundreds of years ago—and life in Monksford turns decidedly more interesting.
Jemma takes a role to cover the experience for the paper. But the real story unfolds behind the scenes—a forbidden kiss, bribery, and tragedy! Jemma holds the power to destroy lives and advance her career, but at what cost?

I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.
I enjoyed the characters, the setting and the plot. Lots of religious thought in it, which I thought was fitting. I'd hear another title by this author, given the chance.
