Award-winning Katya Balen’s dramatic and mesmerising adventures story deftly tells of longing, hope, loving and loss as two sisters search for the story of their identity.
Now living in the Light House as part of a much-loved found family, Fen and Rey know that they were found curled up warm and safe with a family of foxes. Unlike some of the other children they have no talismans or documents from their past, no mother to write to on Sundays. Instead, Fen and Rey imagine…
They imagine themselves a past with a mother who lived out in the wildlands and left them in the care of the foxes. Needing to turn the imagining into reality the two girls set out to search for the truth they need. Weaving real and imaginary experiences together in a gripping adventure with these two remarkable and very different girls at its heart Katya Balen explores family and the powerful ties of love that children need and create.
