When government cutbacks leave RAF pilot Steve Wilson without a job, he decides to invest his redundancy money in a family-run museum.
But Steve has an ulterior motive: a mission that leads him to a remote Yorkshire Dales village to fulfil a lifelong ambition, unaware of the repercussions his actions will have on the villagers and his own family...
...once long-buried secrets come to the surface.

A novel that crosses genres, Mission Accomplished is the kind of story that's got a bit of everything - mystery, supernatural and romance, both historical and contemporary - indeed, the threads of past and present are entwined from the outset, although it is only as the mystery unfolds just how deeply entwined they are.
The setting is a village in the Yorkshire dales, with just the kinds of people you'd expect to find there, and what is particularly wonderful is that, aside from the main protagonists, most of the characters are older people, which is how it should be, because it is a story across two generations (grandparents/grandchildren).
Saying more would be tricky without giving away spoilers. Suffice to say, digging up the past is always bound to unearth a few unexpected surprises, often the kind that are better left undisturbed.
A great read, well-written, intriguing and with a touching conclusion.

About Sheila Kendall
I was born and bred in Yorkshire, close to the Dales, and now live in Leeds. I am married and have two sons and a soon-to-be daughter-in-law.
I've been writing for most of my life. It's what keeps me sane, although I have to admit it isn't always easy, helped as I invariably am by our two gangster cats, aptly named Bonnie and Clyde.
Most of my inspiration comes from life, although not necessarily mine. I'm well past the heroine stage now! Like many other writers, one of my favourite pastimes is people watching, so, if you ever see a strange woman sitting scribbling in a café, beware! It could be me...
