A Clearer Sky

A continuation of The Secret Garden

Yorkshire, 1914. Mary Lennox thought her world didn’t need to extend past her aunt’s secret garden after finally finding a home with her cousin, Colin, and her uncle at Misselthwaite nearly six years ago. But when war breaks out in Europe, Mary realizes that she can’t control anything outside the garden walls when her childhood best friend, Dickon Sowerby, announces he’s leaving to fight, taking away both his steady companionship and Mary’s dream of something more. Things only spiral further with Colin’s sudden departure, and Mary is left to run an estate she never planned to manage.

As the Great War spreads—bringing wounded soldiers, news of death, and increasing uncertainty to Yorkshire—Mary is forced to reckon with decisions she isn’t ready to make. And she can only hope that the mysterious magic of the garden that brought them all together once before reaches far enough to preserve the home and family that she waited so long to find.

In this stunning continuation of The Secret Garden, author Krystal Bailey brings readers back to the garden gate and beyond with a story full of heart, familiar faces, and new beginnings.

Eoghan's Tale

A short story

Set against the backdrop of Misselthwaite Manor and its secret garden, before the sequel A CLEARER SKY, Dickon has a story to tell...

After turning fourteen, Dickon must leave behind the carefree days in the secret garden with his childhood chums, Mary Lennox and Colin Craven. But it's hard to watch his friends forget about him as he starts tending the sprawling grounds and livestock alongside his father.

However, when one of Mr. Craven's horses manages to escape, Dickon must search his beloved moors to rescue the creature. Amidst hooves and heartbeats, Dickon helps the handsome gray yearling, who he names Eòghan, through to recovery. And so unfolds the fairytale of Eòghan, who comes across the conspiring fairies of the moor in his search for touching the sky.   

With familiar faces like Mary Lennox and the enigmatic Mr. Archibald Craven gracing this short story, Eòghan's Tale crafts a poignant narrative of growth, examining the tender intersection between nostalgia and the inevitable transition to adulthood.
