Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

For ten-year-old Christine, home is a hostile, troubling place. Her mother reserves her affection for her younger live-in lover, and for Christine's teenage brother Waldo. Christine takes out her angry feelings on her Barbie dolls and a weaker girl in her class. Then, on a family camping holiday in Scotland, a tragic accident occurs for which Christine blames herself, and panic-stricken, she runs away with her four-year-old brother and hides in the back of a stranger's car." "Agnes Stam is an elderly Dutch spinster, making her annual summer pilgrimage to her family's holiday cottage on Mull. When she discovers the little stowaways in her car, she fails to report the missing children and allows them to stay. And so a little girl with a big, guilty secret becomes a lonely old woman's salvation - and also her nemesis.
