Rumours is a series of five connected stories. Jack and Margaret Walker have been happily married for twenty years but their world is turned upside down when their daughter Julia dies. The strain it places on them is enormous… and then the rumours start.
Was it really an accident that killed Julia? Or was there a more sinister reason for her death? For thirty years the rumours haunt the Walker family, extending across three generations – until their granddaughter Nicole finally begins to uncover the truth. But is she prepared for what she will find?
Rumours started as a thriller but changed when I wondered what it would be like to explore an event through different eyes. What would it be like, to live with a rumour for thirty years? How would it change you? And how does an event change when viewed through different perspectives? Rumours should be finished in 2010.
