Gussie, Ned, and Jannie are not quite siblings, but they share a fiercely close and affectionate family bond. In their bohemian Cornish home, with a famous and distinguished artist as their father figure, they glory in their unusual upbringing and their unconventional, loving family life.... Until one day a terrible tragedy destroys the foundations of that family, and they have to learn to cope on their own.
I was really sorry when I got to the end of this one which is always a good sign. The story flowed well with excellent narration and a good theme. I am a big fan of Sallis and this did not disappoint
