The Umbrella Graveyard
Front Cover
Rachel Donkersley


Brief Description: Paddy Jones’ ordinary life as a young architect in York is suddenly transformed when, while travelling home from his parents’ house in Hepby after his traditional Christmas visit, his ardent curiosity leads him to follow a mysterious beam of light and he finds himself catapulted into the parallel universe of Tunnelton.
Why was he there? How did he get there? And, most importantly, how would he get back home? As he travels around his new and unusual environment, which is to be his home for the next seven days, his imagination is stretched to the limit as he searches for the answers to his questions, meeting a whole host of engaging and intriguing characters, and gradually uncovering the mysteries of this strange and enchanting place.
One thing’s for sure, this would turn out to be the most fascinating, thought-provoking and awesome New Year of his life, and he would never be able to look at a duck or an umbrella in the same way again!

Special Note: This book is also available as an ebook.
