In an old tea caddy, wrapped in a piece of silk, lies a piece of frosted glass, shaped like a perfect tear and swirled with all the colours of the seascape. What is it? Where did it come from? In her spidery writing, on tissue thin paper tucked away in the corner of the box, Bron tells the tale of a day like no other when a glass tear landed with a ‘thwump’ in her lap – and nobody believed her story of what lay hidden in a cave on the beach beneath her home.

Anna Howard’s beautifully told story, finely illustrated by Fran Evans, captures the timeless quality of childhood imagination and the lovely Pembrokeshire coast. This is a book for children and adults to treasure, to share and enjoy.
