As the story, set in a small sleepy South Oxfordshire village unfolds- the reader is taken back, on a roller coaster ride to different periods in history. Their ancestors tales show how the Inn and the role they played in world events, helped shape the character and determination of the little band of today s villagers. The attempts of the villagers seem futile but nothing is guaranteed in life and no one could predict the outcome of their quest to save the Inn or the impact of events in the past on their own lives going forward. Their lives and souls are woven into the very fabric of the building and are visible through the Pains of Glass.
