Book Description Text Publishing Co, Australia, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Trespassing in Mr Lovett s secluded garden was a welcome escape for sixteen-year-old Catherine. A haven away from the parents who didn t understand her moodiness and from her pretty, even-tempered sister, Diana, who she resented. It was a place to be alone. But this all changes when Catherine is confronted by Mr Lovett and, realising he is blind, decides to confide in him. And so begins a remarkable friendship. Unexpectedly, a third person appears in the garden- an intruder. Terry, abrasive and sullen, menacing even - has a claim to make on the garden. It is a piece of land he feels should belong to his own family. In his plan neither Mr Lovett nor the garden are safe and it is up to Catherine to stop him but in Terry, she recognises something of herself. A complex and gripping novel of human relationships from one of Australia s foremost authors for young adults. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781922147011
