One of our Books of the Year 2016 | October 2016 Debut of the Month    Debut author Lucy Strange tells a touching story, rich in atmosphere and with a strong historical background capturing a young girl’s need for courage and her way of finding it. Henry’s (short for Henrietta) life is turned upside down following the death of her brother.  Following a move to the country, Henry finds herself almost alone; her despairing father disappears on a work trip while her mother takes to her bed and becomes a prisoner of the doctor. Henry finds help and friendship from Moth, the mysterious woman who lives in the woods. Together, they refashion Henry’s life and she begins to heal.  ~ Julia Eccleshare

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher ‘I have always found friends in books: fictional characters were the best company for a lonely little boy beset by illness and big sisters! So it was with huge enthusiasm that I read Lucy Strange’s haunting tale of a terrific girl called Henry who draws inspiration, wonder and strength from books. Henry’s bravery in the face of terrible risks kept me racing to the very last page of this beautiful and mesmerizing novel. Set over a long, dreamy summer, The Secret of Nightingale Wood already enchants like a true classic.’
