Publisher's Summary

A young school boy visiting his aunt's country house finds company and friendship with the gentle beekeeper and begins teaching the man to read. It seems nothing can ever intrude upon their closeness. A young country girl fights against becoming a downtrodden domestic skivvy like her dead mother, while another young girl reaches a delicate understanding with an elderly blind man as they walk along the beach together. On another beach a more sinister plot unfolds as a gang of boys plan the wicked deed.

I stupidly didn't realise that this was a short story book, but thought I'd try it out as I generally like short stories, however I found the stories and the narrator pretty non descript. Very disappointed as I was expecting more oomph from Susan Hill (not sure if they were all written by her).
