On the Scottish island of Skua, a friendship develops between lonely and mysterious Perdita and a blind girl and her brother as the threesome look for rare orchids, explore the island caves, and meet up with jewel thieves.
The Peppermint Pig (1975)
Johnnie was only the runt of the litter, a little peppermint pig. He'd cost Mother a shilling, but somehow his great naughtiness and cleverness kept the children Poll and Theo cheerful, even though it was one of the most difficult years of their lives.
Carrie's War (1973)
Albert, Carrie and young Nick are war-time evacuees whose lives get so tangled up with the people they've come to live among that the war and their real families seem to belong to another world. Carrie and Nick are billeted in Wales with old Mr Evans, who is so mean and cold, and his timid mouse of a sister, Lou, who suddenly starts having secrets. Gradually they begin to feel more at ease in their war-time home, but then, in trying to heal the rift between Mr Evans and his estranged sister, and save Druid's Bottom, Carrie does a terrible thing which is to haunt her for years to come. Carrie revisits Wales as an adult and tells the story to her own children.
