Soon after her father’s funeral, a grieving Bethany is sent to stay with her uncle’s family over the summer holidays. In Camomile House she is always second place to her brilliant and beautiful cousin Poppy. But then a mysterious third cousin arrives. Rivalaun is a stranger to them all. The three cousins share secrets, lies and dreams as they try to unravel the riddle of their parents' past and the obscure prophecies of their own future. This is a story of magic, myths and mystery told from overlapping perspectives as the cousins forge their way to the heart of dream... "This clever and ambitious novel leads the reader from a recognisable world, give or take a bit of magic, into a dreamscape littered with mythological, psychological and literary allusions... A book for literary readers, they will enjoy, and perhaps feel challenged by its allegorical resonance and by the stanzas at the beginning of each chapter, drawn from a galaxy of British and Irish poets."
