Introducing The Secret of Nightingale Wood by Lucy Strange – a gorgeous, haunting winter read, and now Waterstones' Children's Book of the Month! 

Not only was Beetle Boy Waterstones' Children's Book of the Month back in February, The Girl of Ink & Stars was also chosen in May – and now The Secret of Nightingale Wood will be available over Waterstones stores from 1st October! We are SO excited to see the amazing wintry window displays and to see Lucy Strange's debut out there on the shelves.

The perfect read for those who love Goodnight Mister Tom or The Secret Garden, The Secret of Nightingale Wood has all the makings of a future classic. If you’re looking for a book to curl up in front of the fire with, look no further …

1919. Mama is ill. Father has taken a job abroad. Nanny Jane is too busy to pay any attention to Henrietta and the things she sees - or thinks she sees - in the shadows of their new home, Hope House. All alone, with only stories for company, Henry discovers that Hope House is full of strange secrets: a forgotten attic, ghostly figures, mysterious firelight that flickers in the trees beyond the garden. One night she ventures into the darkness of Nightingale Wood. What she finds there will change her whole world …
