Secret of Nightingale Wood

1919. Henry has moved to the countryside with her parents and her baby sister, Piglet – all still scarred by the death of her brother.

Nobody much notices when she wanders into the woods at the bottom of the garden and meets Moth, a striking witch-like woman. Together they form a bond that could help Henry save her family.
