  • Abandoned as a baby, Stephen had nearly given up hope of ever finding his family. This epic adventure of imagination - a life-time's work from a brilliantly talented narrative voice - follows his change in fortunes as he receives an unexpected letter from a strange source and sets off on an unforgettable journey. From a drab room in London, where the rain confirms the greyness of his life, Stephen travels to a Cornish Valley; remote, exquisitely beautiful and heavy with secrets.
