Glassheart is roaring fire of a book, a winterish adventure story set on Dartmoor in the aftermath of World War Two. It has a terrific, twilight atmosphere with great landscapes, ancient spirits and a courageous child. Nona’s uncle is a restorer of stained glass windows and at its heart this is a story about putting the World back to rights after terrible events.
