According to Ruth by Jane Feaver
Book DescriptionIt is 1979 and in a ramshackle cottage in Northumberland fifteen-year-old Ruth is desperate to leave behind the gradual implosion of her parents' marriage as she pursues her own quest for love and excitement. Fantasies about the son of the local farmer offer a temporary distraction from the rising tensions at home but Ruth soon discovers that the family are coming to terms with a very different tragedy...Told largely from the darkly humorous perspective of Ruth, Jane Feaver's novel is an engaging and profound insight into the relationships within families and the nature of love and loss, of grief and grieving.

Inventory of Heaven, Paperback (May 2013)
By turns chilling and poignant, An Inventory of Heaven is a lyrical and intimate meditation on the things we hold onto in life and how, in the end, we can try to let them go.
Love Me Tender, Paperback (May 2010)» View all books by Jane Feaver
There is more going on in rural Buckleigh than meets the eye. Distinguished by its Silver Band, whose presence is felt throughout, it soon becomes clear that the neighbourliness and sense of community the Band represents are as much a curse as a blessing.
