AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'For the first ten years of Freja's life, she and her mother Clementine have roamed the Arctic in search of zoological wonders. Happy, content, together. Freja and Clem. Clem and Freja. But now, everything is changing, and Clementine must send Freja away to live with her old friend Tobias, a bestselling crime writer and, quite possibly, the most absent-minded man on earth. Tobias isn't used to life with a child, and Freja isn't used to people at all, but together they'll stumble into an Italian adventure so big that it will change things forever ... Award-winning Australian author Katrina Nannestad returns with a delicious new series about family, friendship and finding yourself. Ages: 8+' (Publication summary)

'Freja finds herself in Rome almost by accident. Her mother is ill in a Swiss sanatorium, but before she went, she made sure that Freja would be safe, living with her old friend Tobias. Tobias is happy to oblige, but is quite unprepared for the floods of tears that overcome Freja when she thinks about her mother. tobias is a writer of mystery who-dun-its and Freja has recently discovered a pile of them under the phone. One evening tears overcome her yet again and, looking around for inspiration, she happens to see the book she's reading at the moment, Rome's Reward.'  (Introduction)
