Abigail's Gift by Stephen Potts
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Set in the modern day, but spanning back to the 1800s, this is a stunning new departure for Steve Potts. Abigail is under pressure at school and at home, so it's little wonder that she drifts off into daydreams. But soon the daydreams become more vivid than the actual life she is living. (One dream in particular keeps recurring: and this is how we meet Morag, a girl living in the Scottish Isles, who is kidnapped and taken to London, where she is forced into a life of drudgery.) Eventually, Abigail's parents decide she needs help: Abigail is put on a course of medication, and slowly begins to forget who she really is...This is a gripping historical adventure, partly set in the modern day, and is both sensitive and thoughtful - as well as a real page turner. Writing doesn't get better than this.

Author Biography
