AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Have you ever wondered what it would be like to win a dream home in an art union? Dominic and his family were living in a caravan park when they heard the news . . .

'Sue Santiago wished for a break too, from the dullness of life, and hoped that her brothers would land the prized part in a pantomime. Her friend Rhiannon thought she had struck it lucky when she found the old record in a bazaar, but she soon found that changes in fortune can go either way.

'Three connected stories about how nothing is simple when big changes come along.' Source: bookseller's website.
