Secrets In Prior's Ford Publisher's Summary

There's consternation among the villagers of Prior's Ford when a firm is interested in re-opening an old granite quarry. It'll be disruptive, noisy and dusty, despite bringing in some new jobs. Publican Glen organises a protest group - but when a local newspaper takes an interest in him and the story, he begins to feel nervous. And when Jenny Forsyth attends a protest meeting, she is shocked to discover the quarry surveyor is an unwelcome face from her past.

Clarissa Ramsay, newly widowed, is too preoccupied to care much about the threat facing the village - she's just discovered her husband Keith had a secret life; while up at Linn Hall the impoverished Ralson-Kerrs find that the changes threatened by the quarry represent a test of loyalty to the village that regards them as its lairds.
