Sonnet has been away travelling the world for so long that when she arrives back home she doesn't know any of her neighbours. Her attempts to make friends are pretty disastrous, as she's brought some eccentric habits home with her and people just don't know what to make of her tales of adventure...Soon, however, a mysterious stranger starts leaving gifts on her doorstep: who are they from and what can they mean? As Sonnet soon discovers, true soul mates are sometimes closer than you think...A gentle text imbued with a love of travel and literature is brought to mischievous life through Sue Hellard's witty illustrations. Historically accurate and wonderfully detailed, her interpretation of Sonnet's Edwardian predicament is also thoroughly modern and utterly charming.
