Publisher Description

A hard-hitting, coming-of-age novel from the author of the bestselling Sprite Sisters series, set on two timelines - one contemporary, the other Iron Age.

14-year old Lilla’s psychic power sets her apart from others. Often doubted, she is the clumsy younger sister to Janey’s swan. In the sweltering July heat the Harrison family move to Grove End, an old farmhouse deep in Norfolk’s Breckland. Two thousand years ago the area was home to the Iceni tribe and their Warrior Queen, Boudica. Now, Nighthawks – illegal metal detectorists – are searching the woods for Iceni treasure. When Lilla sees the ghosts of Boudica’s daughters, she learns the trees hide an ancient mystery.

Janey’s arrival brings upset as she reveals her own dark secret. Overwhelmed by a sense of failure, she no longer knows who she is or what she wants. Shocked and struggling to cope, her parents try to help but are wrestling with their own feelings.

It is Lilla who must find the strength to help her sister. With Boudica’s daughters as her guides, her journey takes her into the ancient past and tests her sense of self-belief to the limit. Can Lilla save her sister and lay the Iceni bones to rest?
