Description

Nell knows that she shares a very special past with her cousins, Edmund and Perry. In their young days in Gloucestershire they used to play, quarrel...and perhaps fall in love a little. When a strange young man arrives in their midst, Nell discovers with a shock that he, too, shares some of their past - and that it is connected with the mysterious, magical old railway coach in the forest where Nell's parents first fell in love. But the forest still holds its secrets, and the uncertainties which Nell and her cousins come to experience can only be satisfied when the mystery is revealed. Passion, loss, tragedy and new beginnings - a moving and heartwarming new novel from the well-loved and bestselling author of "The Pumpkin Coach".show more
