Lucy Strange: From Stage to Page

Lucy Strange: From Stage to Page

Posted on 30th Sep, 2016 by Sally Campbell

Our Children's Book of the Month for October is The Secret of Nightingale Wood, Lucy Strange's eerily luminous debut that evokes memories of classics such as I Capture The Castle or The Children of Green Knowe. Set in England just after World War One, it tells the story of Henrietta, a solitary girl trying to recover from the devastating loss of her brother. Drawing deep on her love for storybook tales and her belief in her brother's spirit, Henry is taken deep into the woods beyond her home to meet with the only figure who just may be able to save her entire family. Here, the author explores how her training as an actor enriched the writing of the book.
