Golden Lads and GirlsBook - 2000
Just occasionally it happens that children fall in love--a strange and innocent love, full of emotional intensity and the source of lifelong, radiant memories. Such a love occurs in 1911 between Hermione, a nine-year-old girl, and Sandy, her eleven-year old neighbour. Both children live in large houses on adjoining estates and they spend two unforgettable summers together before being forcibly separated by their parents. After a lifetime apart they find each other again. Can they rediscover their childhood selves? This original and touching novel is an extraordinary love story which ponders universal questions of love, secrets and inheritance.
