AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A psychological thriller, a desperately moving and ultimately uplifting tale of childhood innocence. . .

As small children, growing up at the property called Abyssinia, two sisters played with their dolls house together, side by side, always. Grace loved Mary and Mary loved Grace.

But inseparable bonds can be unexpectedly shattered. When this happens to Grace, she is plunged into a dark and mesmerising world, a world full of bells and the ringing sky, of odd little children, strange events and frighteningly bizarre grown ups.' (Publisher's blurb)
