The Magpie's Nest

 Just published...

This novel is the first of the Trudi Larsson stories.

The Larssons are a model, modern family: successful parents, clever children, a comfortable, suburban home. Everything seems just fine until Grandfather Larsson comes to stay. Then uneasy cracks appear. Old Per brings draughts of a subversive other-world from his forest-home in Sweden and within days of his arrival the household's careful summer plans are in disarray.

While her parents fume at the disruption, ten-year-old Trudi is intrigued by Per. Why is he so secretive about his past? And where does he go when he should be asleep in his bed? And how does he contrive to know things no one has ever told him? In defiance of everyone, she sets her heart on uncovering the truth.

Gradually her safe, suburban world reveals hidden depths. Trudi finds herself on a path which will bring her face to face with her darkest fears, but by now there can be no turning back... She has already been bewitched, for Grandfather Larsson is no ordinary grandfather and his secrets are the secrets of enchantment.

Did you think that magic was child's play? Think again.

'A journey to the interior of things is an adventure for any curious mind and everything is curious for those with eyes to see.'

A new series of paintings exploring the landscape of Mountains.

Ever suffer from mountain-sickness - the longing to take off into wild and inaccessible places?

300 miles from the nearest peak, Rosemary finds a cure by swapping boots for brushes and takes a walk in paint through the wilderness landscapes of her mind.

Exhibition open throughout weekends in May and at other times when possible. Please see opening times for daily information.
