Abyssinia Kindle Edition
“In the circle,” whispered Dr Fleet, “there can be no gaps, no spaces. Loss and gain, a child for a child. There is a circle. A child for a child, for a child.”
The children play with a mysterious doll’s house on a remote Australian property named “Abyssinia”. Or are the children really dolls themselves? Inspired by the historic house and farm at Rouse Hill in the west of Sydney.
“Brilliantly evokes the often-shadowy place of childhood, but at the core is an intriguing story that will have younger readers asking questions that adults won’t be able to answer.” The Age “A wonderful book of great intensity “
