MEET ELIZABETH HARTLEIGH COMPTON. SHE'S THE HOUSE-RICH,
MONEY POOR KEEPER OF THE MANOR--AND KEEPER OF THE PEACE...
In WWII England, the quiet village of Sitting Marsh is
faced with food rations and fear for loved ones. But
Elizabeth Hartleigh Compton, lady of the Manor House,
stubbornly insists that life must go on. Sitting Marsh
residents depend on Elizabeth to make sure things go
smoothly. Which means everything from sorting out gossip
to solving the occasional murder....
Sixteen-year-old Beryl Pierce was trouble with a capital
T. So when she winds up dead below a cliff, villagers call
it an accident waiting to happen. But Elizabeth and the
girl's mother think it was murder. Suspects abound--an
American soldier, a boyfriend, and a jealous acquaintance.
And Elizabeth is glad to help. But when the Manor House is
chosen to house American officers, she's up to her ears in
murder and military mayhem-a battle that may get the best
