Witness a young woman, come of age, struggling to leave behind her childhood and something even more precious and innocent. Wander the sacred halls of a medieval monastery, where inquisitive scribes unearth forbidden truths. Accompany an Edwardian detective on an unorthodox pursuit of justice for a resurrected actress. And in a Wiltshire curiosity shop, a lonely shop owner discovers the transformative magic of friendship…and more.
