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?

“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

“A modern classic”

I loved this book. Exotic pineapples grown in a walled kitchen garden. Lovable characters that jump out of the page. Mysterious goings-on at every turn. Based on a real place (Ickworth Park, Bury St Edmunds).... More
