It is 1979, and Mrs Thatcher has just become Prime Minister. Punk and Ford Capris are everywhere.

Julian Kirrin, now a forty-something entrepreneur, has big ideas for Kirrin Island. But he has to convince Dick, Anne and George – not an easy job! The cousins have grown up and grown apart. Anne has a perfect marriage and twins who are a little unusual. Dick is still seeking success and the love of a good woman. George is as fierce and independent as ever, despite her teenage son. Her dog, Gary, is not at all like Timmy!

Of course there will be temper tantrums, awkward children and suspicious activities at sea, but serious danger and old political secrets are threatening the cousins. Can they escape this time?

Enid Blyton did not write this book. Touching, humorous and affectionate, this unofficial novel will delight anyone who wonders how their favourite characters might have grown up and coped in a changing world.

Can adults ever recover the perfect summers they enjoyed as children?

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”
