What a treat. Children's author St John brings her masterful story-telling to the adult market ... Engaging, original and charming.
This unusual love story is the first adult novel from this children's author and will have you in its thrall from the start.
It's interesting to see how a successful children's writer makes the transition to adult fiction, and St John pulls it off brilliantly
