Product Description

Product Description

When Janey's father, a mountaineer, goes missing in an avalanche on an expedition to climb Kanchenjunga, one of the highest mountains in the world, eleven year old Janey cannot believe that her beloved Dad is dead.

While her mother Liz prepares to travel to India, to visit the place where her husband disappeared, she tells Janey that she will be going to stay with her grandfather, George Baxter, an eccentric antique dealer who she barely knows. But George has plans to take Janey on a journey of his own - to Italy, in a caravan. At first, grieving and furious at being left behind, Janey is not at all happy.

But she is in for an adventure of a different kind from her mother's, one which involves beaches and a volcano, friendships and secrets, unfinished business from her grandather's time as a soldier in World War II, and a new gift of family in a way she could never have expected.

A warm-hearted story of family and adventure – to be enjoyed by children of all ages!
