What you need to know before your trail

Sarah Carpenter lives an isolated life in a farmhouse in North Yorkshire. Once the house was full of laughter and love, but since her husband died and her children have grown up,she lives alone. She’s not lonely – well she has her two dogs, many friends and a best friend named Sophie.

One day someone else comes into her life – Aiden Beck, an old acquaintance, who needs somewhere to stay for a while. Sarah says he can stay here for a while – it’ll be nice to have someone around and some one from the past she thinks of the reminiscing they might do.

But what starts as a temporary arrangement soon takes on a life of its own. . Friends start to check up on Sarah at every opportunity. Even Sophie has grown remote and distant.

Then people Sarah knows start to go missing. Suddenly Sarah finds herself in terrible danger, unsure of who she can still trust. And where is Aidan?

Travel Guide

The village and isolated farmhouse in on the Yorkshire Moors

The areas themselves are unnamed or vague but this just adds to the overall sense of isolation, claustrophobia and the idea that there are probably not many road or place signs dotted around this part of the world. And that just makes you think of ramblers, paths that double as roads, and trails and traces that only be spotted by those who know the land well..
Sarah’s village:

It’s great, lovely friendly people. It’s got a few shops,coffee shops and tea rooms ,a post office, a Chinese, a chippy, but I steer clear of that one. the pub are nice, The restaurant in one of them is particularly good, but you  have to book. There’s a new village hall,lots of things going on …events… you know
Or the view of the village and the community via Aiden:

“You love things like this; the opportunity to meet all these new people in an an environment in which they are all unguarded, feeling safe. They do not realise how much they reveal about themselves and how quickly”

Next time you go wandering on the North Yorkshire Moors, just keep your eyes out for an isolated farmhouse and wonder if there might be a lodger staying there too..
