Decades after her divorce, a woman returns to the village of her tumultuous marriage. Another waits anxiously in a café before eloping to Paris. A murder raises fears of blackmail.

Witty and subversive, the stories in Winter in the Air meld tradition and transgression, with secret sins as much a feature of English life as eccentric aunts, country houses and parish churches.
