A mysterious and poignant coming of age story with the same classic feel as A Little Princess and The Secret Garden.
  A Wattys 2014 Talk of the Town Award winner and now a Wattpad Featured story!
  In 1958, a tragic accident steals away Jess's parents - and everything else she's ever known.  With a cold and controlling uncle the only family she has left, she's taken far from her home in the big city.  Brought to live on the rural family estate with her equally distant older cousin, she struggles to adjust to a new life of loneliness and quiet isolation.  
  While exploring the woods surrounding her home, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy.  Desperate for a friend, she's instantly drawn to him, but he's deeply distrustful and wants nothing to do with her.  Sneaking off to see him, she works hard to break through his walls and slowly gains his trust.  
  But as their bond grows from friendship into something more, so does the danger they'll be caught.  How far will Jess have to go to protect the boy she's fallen in love with?  Or will her her uncle find out before she can escape his control? 
  By the same author as Wattys finalists Stolen Hearts and Love You Forever!
