Forbidden to walk because of his illness, Charles Fergusson is growing up a spoiled, sickly child. He dreams of becoming a plant hunter, and of finding the fabled Blue Poppy which grew in his grandmother's garden in Sikkim, but it seems he will be trapped forever in the dark house in the Cumbrian fells. That is, until the feisty, disrespectful Betty comes back to work as a servant at Bambeck Hall.

But Charles and Betty have a secret history unknown to either of them...His journey will lead him to the great Himalayas, but will he find the Blue Poppy and discover his true destiny?… (more)
