This week in my North Yorks moors serial, Annie is baffled by beautiful Luke and reacquaints herself with Celtic trees.
I love the illustration for part two: the way it waterfalls down the side of the page and pools in the bottom corner.
What Annie doesn't ever get to have - in print anyway - is one of my favourite things from Whitby: Botham's gingerbread loaf. Firm, dry but soft, melts in the mouth and intensely gingery. Exactly how gingerbread always used to be. Much consumption went into the writing of this serial.
13th March issue should be on sale Wed 7th or Thurs 8th this week.
