The Night Flower Blog Tour


I'm pleased to welcome Sarah Stovell onto the blog today. Sarah is the author of The Night Flower and has agreed to share her favourite childhood book.

My Favourite Childhood Book
I was an odd child - lonely and hugely imaginative, and also

bookish without being particularly clever. When I first read Anne of Green Gables, I was ten years old and staying with my grandparents in Devon. My grandma bought it for me from a little bookshop on Sidmouth High Street and I spent most of that week reading it. Anne, like me, had always craved a kindred spirit - a term I had never heard until then - and without doubt, she was mine. She speaks in the book about having a ‘window friend’ - a girl just like her who she’d met in the window of a bookcase. Anne was my window friend.
