The setting of Summer Nineteen Forty-Five is a small, seemingly tranquil village in the English midlands at the end of the second-world war. But the village’s calm is about to be disrupted by the unexplained death of a girl evacuee from London, and this sets in motion a series of events leading to further, catastrophic death. Only years later are the mysteries of these deaths unravelled.
