Over a hill, at the end of a road, by a glittering stream that twists and turns, stands a house, with twelve children who eat and sleep and work and play, who get in trouble, and argue and dream, who milk the cows and fish in the stream - a farmhouse where they are growing up, waiting to see what the future might bring.  Sophie Blackall invites us to join her on this enchanting visit to a farmhouse across time, to a place that echoes with stories.
