Uncover some mysterious family secrets in the latest book by bestselling author Jasbinder Bilan

Costa Award-winning Jasbinder Bilan is a master storyteller. Her latest book weaves together a tender family story with fantasy, animals and archaeology - what's not to love?


Archaeology-obsessed Xanthe loves visiting her grandmother in her tower-block flat with its lush rooftop garden. When Nani is diagnosed with dementia, Xanthe is determined to help her remember who she is and her family history. A mysterious cat leads Xanthe to some unexpected answers; secret mementoes from Nani’s past which reveal her as a girl who, long ago, was forced to leave everything she loved behind…
