Maria is always getting lost in the secret world of her imagination...A ghostly mystery and winner of the Whitbread Award,republished in the Collins Modern Classics range. Maria likes to be alone with her thoughts. She talks to animals and objects, and generally prefers them to people.

But what happened to her? As Maria becomes more lost in Harriet's world, she grows convinced that something tragic occurred...Perfect for fans of ghostly mysteries like 'Tom's Midnight Garden'.show more
