I may have slipped up on the whole banning-myself-from-buying-any-more-books idea! Mainly because I decided to buy a new CD to listen to in my car (I have an old-school CD player in my car and no radio as it died!) and to get free delivery, I bought a book!
This book has been sitting in my wish list for a while now, and I wanted a copy because I read it as a child and loved it. I used to borrow it from the library quite a lot and I decided I wanted to read it again.
The book is “The Witch’s Daughter” by Nina Bawden:
The blurb reads:
“On the Scottish island of Skua, friendship develops between the lonely and mysterious Perdita and a blind girl, Janey. Both possess a kind of second sight – Janey’s is the ability to hear, feel and remember more than others, and Perdita’s is the ominous legacy of her being a witch’s daughter. When Janey’s brother, Tom, starts investigating a cluster of mysterious events and suspicious characters, all three become entwined in an adventure of hidden jewels, desperate criminals and dangerous detection.”
This has been added to my ever-growing To-Read pile!
