Product description

A tender, haunting fairy story wrapped in a cover to gaze at for hours. Old-fashioned in the loveliest way, like a vintage frock from your nan’s attic. When Alice’s brother has a heart transplant, Alice is bundled off to her estranged grandmother’s house. At the bottom of Nell’s wild garden is the beautiful Darkling Wood: a place where Alice can, for once in her life, feel safe and at home. But there’s somebody else who calls the wood home. The beautiful, mysterious, enchanting Flo… A lovely book that seamlessly blends fantasy with the pains of reality. We want to know: who is the cover artist?

“Absorbing, sensitive and genuinely magical.” Independent

“A tender tale of family ghosts and secrets.” Financial Times

“Destined to be a modern classic in its own right.” Irish Examiner
