Notes

  • ' The Secret is the fourth novel in the Seyrac family series They are closely based on my childhood experiences, though I hasten to add that they are not totally autobiographical! In this novel, Florence, the central character, is caught up in a web of 'Polichinelle' secrets: or open secrets. Who is the old lady in the secret garden? Why is Andy Jenkins such a pain? What will happen with the restaurant the family are going to run? This is a gentle family story, a unique part of a unique series about a migrant experience..and lots of fun!' (Author's website.)
