Bought at this shop and read while visiting the Netherlands. Fair warning: the first few chapters are a bit rough, full of all kinds of childhood trauma triggers. I'm not a fan of kids-in-danger books so I was rushing a bit through this. I'm glad I did as I enjoyed the rest of the bookThe three main characters, two kids and an elderly Dutch woman, Agnes Stam, are all fascinating and worth following. Their not-quite-idyllic time together on the island of Mull—interspersed with Agnes's memories of her life with her four brothers—was dangerous but lovely, too. The end is surprisingly loose. Does this happen? Don't know. Does that? Also unknown!
