Summary

It all started with a letter that had been lost for a long time -- fifty years in an attic in a forgotten postal bag. Edie Burchill and her mother were never close, but when that long lost letter arrives one Sunday afternoon with the return address of Millderhurst Castle, Kent, printed on its envelope, Edie begins to suspect that her mother's emotional distance masks an old secret. Evacuated from London as a twelve year old, Edie's mother was taken by the mysterious Juniper Blythe to live at Millderhurst Castle with the Blythe family: Juniper, her twin sisters, and their father Raymond. In the grand and glorious Millderhurst Castle, a new world opens up for her. She discovers the joys of books, fantasy, writing -- and danger.

Fifty years later, as Edie searches for answers to her mother's riddled past, she is drawn to the castle and the eccentric sisters Blythe. Old ladies now, the three still live together, the twins nursing Juniper, whose abandonment by her fiance in 1941 plunged her into madness. Inside the decaying castle, Edie begins to unravel her mother's past. But there are secrets hidden in the stones of Millderhurst Castle. The truth of what happened in the distant hours has been waiting a long time for someone to find it . . .
