From acclaimed author Dan Smith comes a page-turning, atmospheric ghost story packed full of adventure and heart …
‘What a story … absolutely gripping’ EMMA CARROLL
‘An enchanting, beautifully crafted wartime tale’ALLY SHERRICK
Malaya, 1942. Nisha’s home is destroyed by war and she and her mother, Amma, flee to her father’s ancestral house in England, perched on a cliff top on the cold Northern coast.
When Amma falls gravely ill, Nisha is left to face her formidable grandmother alone. Grandmother’s rules are countless, and her Anglo-Indian granddaughter is even forbidden from climbing the old weeping tree.
But when a ghost child beckons Nisha to sit under its boughs, and promises her Amma’s life in return for three truths, its pull proves irresistible …
A thrilling historical ghost story; full of adventure, grief, guilt, forgiveness and belonging
A fresh angle on a wartime story: the prejudice Nisha faces as a refugee feels particularly relevant today
Perfect for fans of Frances Hardinge and Emma Carroll
Praise for Dan Smith:
