Summary

A heartwarming novel from the queen of family saga and author of Bicycles and Blackberries, Sheila Newberry.

Suffolk, 1925. At only 16 years old, May Moon travels to West Wick, Suffolk, to become the local Punch and Judy girl.

Determined to fulfil her dead father's wishes and to continue his business, May has her work cut out for her during her summer on the beach.

Staying with a local family, she not only enjoys the silvery sand and sunshine; she also experiences first love, partings and reunions. And, before long, realises that performing might be in her blood....
