The Pink House
Alan Kennedy, author
This sequel to The Broken Bell finds the children growing apart. Poppy must chose between painting and adventure as the others discover a lost lake in a secret valley. The decision to stay behind and begin her first painting changes her life for ever as, too late, she discovers the dreadful consequence of their discovery. Set between the wars, the author’s unique style sees the action through the eyes of children confronting a world they never quite understand. At one level an adventure story, at another, a spellbinding account of a child's first steps in the dark world of art and artists. A book about love and loss and the power of art.
