    Ten-year-old Judith McPherson is a believer. She sees the world with the clear Eyes of Faith. Where others might see rubbish, Judith finds possibility and traces of the divine. But at school Judith’s difference marks her only for persecution at the hands of her classmates. And lately, even at home she struggles to find connection in a house filled with relics of a mother she’s never known. To escape, Judith makes things in the Land of Decoration, a model in miniature of the Promised Land made of scraps.

    Judith and her father don't have much - their house is full of dusty relics, reminders of the mother she's never known. But Judith sees the world with the clear eyes of faith, and where others might see rubbish, Judith sees possibility. Bullied at school, she finds solace in making a model of the Promised Land - using pipe cleaners and other supplies to make little people, a sliver of moon, luminous stars, and a mirror sea - a world of wonder that Judith calls The Land of Decoration.

    A powerful, lyrically told and unusual love story by the prize-winning author of The Land of Decoration. A poem wrapped in brown paper. A man, a woman, a city, and a past that must not be remembered. Elizabeth Stone, a respected academic, has a new lease on life. In remission from cancer, she returns to the city where she was a student over thirty years ago to investigate some little-known papers by T. S.
