“The Tillerman series… is a tour de force”
Dicey began to panic. The four of them had been waiting in the car for hours now. Why wasn’t their mother back? Why had she just walked off like that? What would they do if she never came back?
When night found them still waiting, bewildered and scared, Dicey decided to act. Their mother had planned to drive them to Bridgeport to see their aunt. So although they had no money they would still go – on foot. Somehow Dicey would find them food and shelter; she would take care of them and keep them together. And eventually – somehow – she would find them a home.
