About the collection
Twin brothers Harold and William love the magic of the natural world.
When Harold dies he leaves a simple memorial request.
Will his brother William and his sister Annette honour it?
Or, will the garden work its magic to ensure that they do.
A magical story expressed via an original compilation of poetry and prose with photographic images.

If you are familiar with Mrs Mallon’s books, this one will pleasantly surprise you, being nothing but a wee treasury of kind thoughts, short prose, and even shorter poems, inspiredly designed and cleverly illustrated with photos taken in the fantastic botanical gardens of Cambridge.
I don’t know if our author has ever read Roald Dahl’s The Minpins, with its famous last line ‘Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it,’ but what I know for sure is that MJ Mallon strongly believes in magic. Read the book, and you will have the same sensation when meeting the real protagonists: a dragonfly, a robin, a golden weeping willow tree, and a couple of spirits. The human appearances are only secondary characters, to certify the link between mystic and real patterns: magic versus twins and sibling relationships, the unconditional beauty of nature, and the seasons of the year, to name just a few.
If this book were a fable, the moral would be:
Love is the best teacher, and it helps human beings sail through challenges they might face in life – believing in themselves and others.
Welcome to the Christmas Book Fair where I will be sharing books by my recommended authors that I believe would make great gifts. If you are gifting someone a Kindle this year it would be a great idea to stock it up with some great books to be enjoyed.
