May 27th sees the anniversary of Mary Ashford who died under mysterious circumstances in rural Warwickshire in 1817. The mystery has intrigued, baffled historians, writers and detectives for over 200 years. My book, ‘One Morning in May’ brings the case afresh seen through the eyes of Father Martin and Anglican priest who researches the case. The book also touches on the brutal murder of Barbara Forrest who died on May 27th 1974 with astounding co-incidences. Proceeds from the book are donated to charities that work with people who have suffered domestic and/or sexual violence.
