Into this strange household comes Lump - otherwise known as Hush - intent on saving the world. But initial confidence wavers as stress, conflict, fire and death are encountered in an inspired and memorable finale.From the author of Cobweb Walking, The Wedding of Jayanthi Mandel, The Tea-Planter’s Daughter and Shining Agnes comes a wonderfully mythic and vibrant novel of the imagination.
