Flavia has just returned to the family estate of Buckshaw following a stay at Miss Bodycote's Female Academy in Canada. Upon her return, Flavia finds her father in the hospital and several other disturbing changes have occured since she left. She escapes to visit the vicar's wife and offers to help her by delivering a message to a woodcarver that has been doing work at the church. Upon her arrival, Flavia discovers the woodcarver's body and immediately embarks on her latest investigation.
I could go on and on about how much I adore Flavia and her quips, insights and determination, but It would really just be best to have you read her stories yourself. I think you will find her every bit as enjoyable as I do.
