Suffer the little Children - Lucy Robertson

Paperback in excellent condition, except some slight cover damage - looks like something got stuck and has pulled a little of the glossy face off.

Truro in the early 1950s: bossy 11 year old Amelia West and her gentle younger sister Caroline grow up in afatherless household, as does William McCullen, their new firend and neighbour, who comes exactly between them in age. The girls' father is dead; William's father is, mysteriously, in Scotland.
The West family take William and his strangely repressed mother with them on their annual idyllic holiday to the Pollard's farm on the north coast of Cornwall. On a clifftop near the farm, Caroline's marvellous new achievement gains adult recognition...
Back in Truro, on the never-to-be-forgotten day of William's school Nativity play, Mr McCullen makes an unheralded appearance in the audience. The consequences of his visit have repercussions far beyond anything the children could have foreseen. Eventually the Pollards' farm is again the background for drama... but this time of a very different kind. As the three grow to adulthood, an unacknowledged shadow lies across their lives. A brutal and shocking act has been committed, the truth of it known only to two of them.
