Book Giveaway For Tilly's Moonlight Garden
by Julia Green
Tilly and her parents have just moved into an old, furnished mansion they inherited. Away from all of her friends, and worried about her un-well mother who is experiencing pregnancy complications, Tilly spends her afternoons exploring the gardens behind the house.
One night, awoken by a strange noise, Tilly looks out of her bedroom window and sees a fox watching her from the lawn. She follows it through a hidden gate and is amazed to discover a secret, moonlit garden.
Tilly returns the following night but this time a young girl called Helen is already there waiting for her. Tilly and Helen become fast friends, but Helen remains elusive about where she lives and why Tilly only encounters her in this seemingly magical woods.
Over the Christmas season and into the spring, Tilly and her parents welcome a new arrival to their family, and Tilly befriends a recent arrival at her school. But when Helen bids her farewell, Tilly wonders; was Helen real or only a figment of her imagination?
Tilly’s Moonlight Garden is an uplifting, imaginative story that will help young readers come to terms with changes in life.
