The Child Garden

Author:

Catriona McPherson

Synopsis:

Eden was its name. "An alternative school for happy children," said the brochure. "A load of hippies running wild in the woods," said the locals. After the suicide, it closed its doors and the children scattered. Thirty years later, it's a care home; its grounds are neglected and its only neighbour is Gloria Harkness, who acts as tenant-caretaker in order to be close to her son, Nicky, a resident of the home. Then one night Gloria's childhood sweetheart, Stephen "Stig" Tarrant, turns up at her door. Stig's being stalked by an Eden girl who has goaded him into meeting her at the site of the suicide. Except that, suddenly, the dead are beginning to speak, and "suicide" is not what they say...

Twenty-one years on, Alma teaches music at her old school. She's moderately content, until the death of the long-serving headmistress brings a new broom in the form of steely modernizing Miss Yates. A new student starts too - the daughter of a man Alma hasn't seen since 1942, when he played a pivotal role in her life. Suddenly, Alma is taken back to the summer that followed the raids, a summer of numbing loss yet also of youthful exuberance, friendship and dancing.
