THE GOLDEN DAY
There were only eleven of them, like eleven sisters all the same age in a large family. Because it was such a very small class, they had a very small classroom, which was perched at the very top of the school - up four flights of stairs,up in the high sky, like a colony of little birds nesting on a cliff.
'Today, girls,' said Miss Renshaw, 'we shall go out into the beautiful Gardens and think about death.'
In the Gardens they meet a poet. What follows is inexplicable, shocking, a scandal. What really happened that day? Do the little girls know more than they are letting on?
The Golden Day was launched in the Nutcote gardens by the multitalented Julie McCrossinon 15 May 2011.
