Edgar and Lucy
Eight-year-old Edgar remembers nothing of the terrible accident people still whisper about. He only knows his father is dead, his mother has a limp, and his grandmother believes in ghosts. When Edgar meets a man with his own tragic story, the boy begins a journey into a secret wilderness where nothing is clear - even the line between the living and the dead. Edgar and Lucy is a thrilling adventure and an unlikely love story, combining a wonderfully rendered family epic with a desperate search for a little boy who's lost.
