AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Something eerie is happening in the little goldmining town of Reedy Creek. When George Clancy Tynan's wife married him he was four feet two inches tall. Then he became a nine-feet-tall giant. A giant obsessed with a woman named Lucia Peddler.

'Now George Clancy's grand-daughter, Kitty Charlotte O'Reilly, seeks the truth about her grandfather. And as she does, she gives us a town, a love story, and an enduring mystery, as her own height increases, inch by inch.'
