It was a magic summer. Kate knew it would be from the moment she was sure it would be spent at a cottage called Stone Place. And when she saw the great natural stone dragon in the field beside the cottage, she was sure that wonderful things would happen. There was much to make it magic: the minor miracle of Merrity; the transformation of Romilly, the strange and beautiful girl who lived down the lane; the presence of Stephen, Kate's adored cousin; and the mystery of the kindly gentleman who came to hear the musical box.
It was a summer of delight for all of them, and the great stone dragon was the keeper of the secrets and the talisman of adventure for each. And when it all was over, no one touched by the dragon or by Stone Place that summer was ever quite the same again.
