"No garden, however small, should contain less than two acres of rough woodland." Lord Rothschild

A story of loss, of love, of a hero’s quest, of echoes across time and of the enduring nature of inheritance.
“Quirky … wonderfully readable … pretty shocking”
“Dazzling and inventive”
“Magnificent … hilarious… extremely touching”
“Historical fiction at the cutting edge…”
