From the award-winning author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things, Reservoir 13 tells the story of many lives haunted by one family's loss. Midwinter in the early years of this century, a teenage girl on holiday has gone missing in the hills at the heart of England. The villagers are called up to join the search, but there is work that must still be done: cows milked, fences repaired, stone cut, pints poured, beds made, sermons written, a pantomime rehearsed.

 Nate and his mother are running away, hiding out in a tumbledown cottage in the middle of a forest. When Mum heads off for provisions, and then doesn't return, Nate is left alone and afraid, with the dark closing in all around him. But comfort can come from the most unexpected of places... A story of fear and hope, loneliness and friendship, full of the heart and engaging characters.

 

NB - watch this space we may be getting technologically clever and Skyping with another bookshop and Lisa at the same time so the time may change. BUT we will give you plenty of notice!
