When Priscilla discovers an inscribed World War I sword hidden behind a painting on her bedroom wall, questions abound. Was the sword used as a murder weapon in a generations-old village mystery, one that pitted a local war hero against a young villager? Will the discovery of it cast a negative light on her great-grandfather, who appears to be the chief suspect in the case? Can she prove her ancestor’s innocence without turning the whole island against her?
Priscilla narrows the large number of suspects until the real perpetrator is revealed. Along the way, she learns more about her great grandfather’s heroism during the Great War and comes to the realization that some battles are worth fighting, no matter how difficult.
