Jess is mourning the loss of her beloved Aunt Edie and anxiously awaiting the birth of her baby brothers, conjoined twins. When she finds a strange and beautiful glass flask hidden in a secret compartment in Aunt Edie’s desk, she is sure there is something magical about it and that there is something extraordinary and powerful inside. When the twins are born critically ill, Jess becomes convinced that the flask is linked to a long-hidden family secret and may have the power to keep the babies alive.
Well-plotted and beautifully characterised, Nicky Singer has crafted an unusual story of loss, love, friendship, hope and the power of imagination.
