From the cover: “Bridget was racing twigs down the flooded ditch when it happened. Everything was very quiet and normal. Farmer Liddell’s old grey pony drooped patiently beside her father’s smithy…
But as Bridget and Luke came to realize, there is a strange, unearthly element in their life at the forge and the fears and tensions which arise from it are centered on their brother Simon — or is he truly their brother ?
This is a story for all those who love sounds and rhythms of words, the atmosphere of the past and the sense of that other world lying beyond the door and under the hill.”
Illustrated by Jill MacDonald. Size: 8" x 5½". Turquoise boards with Silver titling to the Spine. 143 pages.
