The morning on which John Rogers was due to deliver his 'mardle' (a talk of local interest) to the people of Letheringham, Suffolk, about the community's ancient Priory Church, he suffered an unexpected heart attack.
In this beautiful and evocative book, he revisits the months of research leading up to the undelivered mardle and - with the added poignancy of his keener sense of mortality - explores the deeper meanings of life and faith that this simple building and its ghosts from centuries of history gradually reveal to him.
