AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Molly has a strange life. Her mama collects herbs at dawn and makes potions, her father and brothers have gone away, and her house feels like a gyspy caravan.

'Molly doesn’t want to know anything about herbs and potions. She wishes she could be more like her best friend, Ellen, who has a normal family and a normal house. But she is also secretly interested in Pim, who is inquisitive and odd and a little bit frightening.

'When Molly’s mama makes a potion that has a wild and shocking effect, Molly and Pim look for a way to make things right, and Molly discovers the magic and value of her own unusual life.'

Martine Murray is poised on the brink of her next adventure, much like many of the heroes who populate her books. She is in the process of readying her home so that she can sell it. She plans on moving to an undeveloped land nearby and starting p a community based on principles of permaculture. This revelation stirs up simultaneous delight in her adventurous spirit and a feeling of sadness for the incumbent loss. Entering the Castlemaine property, whose location has inspired several of her books, one is struck by its unconventional beauty and how it appears attuned to its natural state. This then is the world of Martine's books. (Introduction)
