‘You’re telling me the Victoria and Albert Museum, only exists because seven guys needed to hide a handful of objects for a hundred years?’
Rebecca hadn’t asked for a story, she wanted the truth; but sometimes the truth is incredible.
Dragged into helping a cause in which she barely believes, Rebecca finds herself playing Hunt-the-Thimble amongst England’s oldest institutions. From London’s V&A to the New York Met and from Oxford to the Peak District, the questions continue: How many ways can you use a candle? Where can you find a golden pelican? And why can she not stop drawing vines?
In a summer of riddles, Rebecca will discover her astonishing ancestry, and half fall in love – twice. But what begins as a game will shake her to the core.
