Pero un domingo por la tarde llega a su casa una carta, perdida hace tiempo, con el remite de Milderhurst Castle, en Kent (Inglaterra), y Edie empieza a pensar que la frialdad de su madre oculta un antiguo secreto. Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la madre de Edie fue evacuada de Londres y acogida por la misteriosa Juniper Blythe en Milderhurst Castle, donde vivia con sus hermanas gemelas y su padre, Raymond, autor del clasico infantil La verdadera historia del Hombre de Barro. <b>ENGLISH DESCRIPTION</b> Edie Burchill and her mother have never been close, but when a long lost letter arrives one Sunday afteron with the return address of Milderhurst Castle, Kent, printed on its envelope, Edie begins to suspect that her mother's emotional distance masks an old secret.
