Product description

Worlds are woven together and lives changed forever in this mystical tale by a Carnegie Medal winner. Mysterious events unfold in the town of Blackbird Tree when Naomi and Lizzie – two spirited orphan girls – meet strange newcomer Finn. Three locked trunks, the mysterious Dingle Dangle man, a pair of rooks, a crooked bridge, and that odd boy are all about to change the girls’ lives forever… As the story moves between their home town and faraway Ireland, this stirring novel shows us that hearts can be mended and that a gossamer thread truly does connect us all.

“One of those stories that stays with you long after you have finished reading.” The Bookseller

“Gently timeless atmosphere… featherlight touch.” Guardian

“A heart warming and delicate story.” Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading ‘Book of the Month’
