Ascension celebration balloons are not the only thing vanishing into mid-air in the small English village of Aidan Kirkwood. Someone's
gone missing! You'll enjoy reading this whodunit, the third in the Berdie Elliott mystery series. Following an Ascension Sunday procession, it's discovered someone has disappeared: an attractive, well-to-do widow. Berdie doesn't let
this mystery out of sight until she has the full truth in clear view.
In years past, many churches in England celebrated
Ascension Sunday with processions, sometimes from one town to the next, that featured musical instruments, singers, and congregants marching joyfully along. This mystery picks up that tradition as seen in a rural church of modern day England.
Though fictional, it's rich with historical precedants.
