When the next Lord Mayor of London is subjected to a vicious anti- Semitic attack, Johnny begins to wonder if the two cases are connected.

Jersey, 1987: The storm clouds are gathering over Colin Bygate, a schoolteacher – and a Mainlander married to an Islander. Sitting on an outcrop, stewing after a row with his wife, Colin spots one of his pupils near the edge of a cliff. Worried that the boy might have intended to jump, he drives him home, hoping that his gloomy imagination has been exaggerating his concern. But when the boy fails to turn up at school the next day, Colin feels duty-bound to track him down – thus pitting himself against the Island establishment, who would rather there was a little less noise around this particular absence. In Jersey, where everyone knows everyone else’s business, you must become your own island, especially when there are secrets to hide . . .
At Christmas time, it seems as though a woman’s work is never done. Trimming the tree, mailing the cards, schlepping to the shops, the endless wrapping – bah humbug! So this year, Joy and Laura and the rest of their knitting group decide to go on strike. If their husbands and families want a nice holiday filled with parties, decorations and presents – well, they’ll just have to do it themselves. The boycott soon takes on a life of its own when a reporter picks up the story and more women join in. But as Christmas Day approaches, Joy, Laura and their husbands confront larger issues in their marriages, and discover that a little holiday magic is exactly what they need to come together.
