The absorbing tale of an unlikely friendship that develops between an ageing West Indian recluse, living in a derelict cottage and tending his bees at the edge of a picture-postcard English village, and Misty, the fiery, sixteen year old heir to the nearby manor house, who bursts into his life one summer and turns his world upside down.
It’s a story of growing up and growing old, of individual responsibility and shared history, of two worlds joined by a painting, and (just possibly) a little magic.
“You don’t always have to leave to change a thing. Sometimes the best way is to stay and change things where you is.”
