Blurb:

Twin brothers Harold and William love the magic of the natural world.

When Harold dies he leaves a simple memorial request.

Will his brother William and his sister Annette honour it?

Or, will the garden work its magic to ensure that they do.

A magical story expressed via an original compilation of poetry and prose with photographic images.

My 5 Star Review:

This was a charming and whimsical read. The author, Mallon, takes us into a magical world in her prose in a tale about 2 siblings, Annette and William, both aging and dealing in their own ways with the grief and some resentments of their departed brother Harold, twin to William. They open up to each other on a bench under the Golden Weeping Willow tree where nature reveals messages.

Mallon did a wonderful job projecting the imagery as the story interconnects with intermittent poetry taking place in the magical botanical gardens, and beautiful photographs added to complement the story.

This is a short upbeat read with great descriptions and an engaging story.

    1. Hi Diana. It was inspired by walks, the beauty of the trees, flowers, birds and creatures that frequent the Cambridge Botanical Gardens plus seeing two very intriguing twins brothers going out for a cup of coffee!

    1. Hi Balroop, yes the name amuses me. My dad asked me when Mr. Pisces is coming out – he’s a pisces! I’ve always been fascinated by the zodiac, and the title fitted in so well with the magical nature of the story.
