Waterstones Says

In the finest horticultural tradition of Philippa Pearce and Frances Hodgson Burnett, AM Howell anchors this charming, domestic wartime mystery in an evocative, allegorical garden. Intrigue, secrets and strange nocturnal figures abound as Clara is sent to stay with her formidable aunt and uncle during the Great War.

October, 1916.

Clara is sent to stay with her formidable aunt and uncle in the grounds of a country estate. Clara soon discovers that her new surroundings hold secrets: a locked room and a hidden key, and a mysterious boy who only appears in the gardens at night...

But can Clara face up to her own secrets, and a war she's desperate to forget?

Because we absolutely love 'The Garden Of Lost Secrets' by A.M.Howell, a delightful book for children inspired by a 100-year-old gardener's notebook found at nearby Ickworth Estate, we have decided to use it as our theme for our Summer Hunt.

If you give us the correct answer you will win a little prize and you will also be entitled to buy The Garden Of Lost Secrets with £1 off.

“Secrets, mystery and friendship against the backdrop of WW1”

This is a timeless read and will be enjoyed by children across Key Stage Two and beyond. Set during WW1 it really reminded me of The Secret Garden (not just because of the name) and if you enjoyed that, you will love... More
