AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Siren Boyd's birthday takes a turn for the worse when she is summoned to the home of her uncle, Big George Hay.

(Publisher's blurb, back cover).

Notes

  • Dedication: For Amaelia, the home girl
  • Epigraph:

    Not much difference

    between me

    and a vegetable

    at present:

    except that the vegetable

    is more fulfilled

    in having achieved

    full vegetableness.

    'Gardeners too must grow' Graham Alcorn
