For Robert Moray there is the unwelcome revelation of a secret he has kept hidden for years; for John Rufford, the anguish of learning the truth; and for twenty-four-year-old Tom, the shattering of all the comfortable certainties of life.While John struggles to keep the promise he has made, Tom's decision to maintain old loyalties is threatened by unforeseen events and Robert's determination to right a wrong. Faced with conflicting emotional demands and his sense of alienation, Tom must decide where his future lies - and with whom.This is a perceptive and insightful novel, and readers will not be disappointed.

About Jane Emerssen

: Jane Emerssen belongs to the 'baby-boomer' post-war generation that witnessed the tremendous changes of the 'Swinging Sixties'. Spending her first ten years in Carlisle, frequent family moves provided an interesting but disjointed grammar school education in Gloucester and North Cheshire. She left school at seventeen and started a career in local government, eventually tying up her educational loose ends with an Open University degree studying the History of English, Latin, Greek and the History of Mathematics. After a career break she began writing, initially concentrating on short stories and self-help books for job-seekers before turning her attention to fiction. She has returned to her roots in Cumbria with her husband, and has one son who insists on piloting large passenger jets around the world. A Plain and Simple Truth is the sequel to her well-received debut novel, A Necessary Fiction and continues the theme of the consequences of unearthing long-buried family secrets.
