Abyssinia

Genre: Young Adult

Abyssinia

This is the story of two sisters, Mary and Grace. As small children, growing up at their property called Abyssinia, they played with their dolls house together, side by side, always. Grace loved Mary, and Mary loved Grace. But inseparable bonds in life can be unexpectedly shattered. When this happens to Grace, she is plunged into a dark and mesmerising world, a world full of bells and the ringing sky, of odd little children, strange events and frighteningly bizarre grown-ups.A desperately moving and ultimately uplifting tale of childhood innocence: this is Ursula Dubosarsky at her most brilliant and satisfying.
