SYNOPSIS:  “In Duncton Tales, William Horwood has created an epic story that will introduce a new generation of readers to his now classic Duncton Chronicles. When Privet, a lonely female scribe from the North, makes a pilgrimage to fabled Duncton Wood, only old Stour, Master of the great library, realizes the importance of her quest. For Privet seeks an answer to moledom’s final mystery: where and what is the Book of Silence?”
