Following their mum’s sudden illness, three children are sent to stay with their great-aunt for the summer holidays.  They are upset and worried about their mum, and they hardly know their elderly great-aunt.  As her old house begins to give up its secrets, the children engage in a treasure hunt—one which will change all their lives for ever.

the beautiful countryside in Dorset, where she lives with her husband Malcolm, a retired Anglican minister. Mary has three children and five grandchildren, who bring her great joy.
